PEEK Granules and Powder

CoPEEK GRANULES

Polyetheretherketon (PEEK) Granules are produced using modern filtration units and are the most widely used PEEK raw material.
PEEK is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic with excellent sliding properties, very good mechanical properties, even under thermal load and an excellent resistance to chemicals as well as a great plasticity that allow a wide application in the industrial field, chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, construction and automotive.
PEEK Granules and Coarse Powder are widely used for the PEEK-SF production and also finished parts are made by injection moulding directly from the PEEK raw material. Fine powder can be used for coating and hot compression moulding.

CoPEEK POWDER

Additionally BIEGLO offers PEEK as Powders that can be used in a wide range of applications, for example in the food, electrical, electronics, and information technology sectors and in the automotive industry. PEEK Powders are processed by a number of different means: press sintering, electrostatic powder spraying, flame spraying and sprinkling, or as a suspension, both in aqueous and in-solvent containing systems PEEK Powder may be divided into Coarse Powder with an average partical size of about 300µm, Fine Powder with an average partical size of about 50µm and ultra-fine powder with an average partical size of about 10-20µm.

FUNCTIONAL COMPOUNDS

The PEEK compounds from BIEGLO include a variety of different products that have been matched to the requirements of processors and end consumers. Mainly unreinforced PEEK may be divided into four viscosity types (Low, normal, high and ultra-high viscosity) Most known common reinforced PEEK compounds are mixtures of PEEK with glass fibres, carbon fibres, Graphite, PTFE and also ceramics. PEEK compounds may support its tribological abilities, rigidity, electricity or wear resistancy.

COLOR COMPOUNDS

Although PEEK has a gray base color, experienced compounders can produce bright colors such as yellow. If required, customers can color PEEK themselves with Masterbatches.

R-PEEK

PEEK as a high performance thermoplast obtains its properties throughout the recycling process. This was proven for granules as well as for semi-finished parts. PEEK-residues do not end up in an incineration plant but are being recycled in a quality assured way which fosters environmental as well as economical sustainability. Closing the loop on a post-industrial level is our short-term goal, closing the loop on a post-consumer level our vision. Implementing these processes appreciates PEEK as a highly valuable resource and optimises its lifetime. Furthermore it enables technical improvement. Due to its interesting pricing R-PEEK can be considered for applications where currently other materials fill the gap but not the technical requirements. BIEGLO gladly assists in each part of this process.

PEEK AS AN ADDITIVE

Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a high-temperature, high-performance thermoplastic special engineering plastics. It has good mechanical properties and resistance to chemicals, resistance to abrasion, resistance to hydrolysis and other properties; its light weight, self-lubricating properties, and having a very good flow properties and processing properties, can be filled with carbon fiber, graphite, molybdenum disulfide, etc. to further improve the lubricating properties and mechanical strength. PEEK is excellent for using as an additive especially due to be comparable with in all plastics.

COATING

The products available as powders or aqueous dispersions exhibit high temperature resistance, outstanding scratch and abrasion resistance as well as mechanical strength and long life. Compared to conventional coatings, PEEK coatings should be considered when properties are improved, the application time is increased, design freedom is increased and costs are to be reduced.
