Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a thermoplastic polymer that is often used as an alternative to metal or other types of plastic. PEEK has a temperature resistance of up to 240°C and a special resistance to chemicals. In addition, PEEK is self-lubricating and can be recycled.
PEEK is in particular demand in the aerospace and automotive industries, as parts made of PEEK poseess a high strength-to-weight ratio. PEEK is used in the medical industry because of its excellent biocompatibility. The resistance to chemicals makes PEEK suitable for oil and gas and food industries as well. PEEK is mainly used as a support ring for seals, in rolling and plain bearings, as valve plates or as matrix material for composites. Additionally, PEEK can be processed to compounds.
PEEK SF products can be processed to:
- Compressor components
- Turned parts
- Rolling bearings
- and much more.
In addition, PEEK monofilaments can be used for 3D printing. PEEK films are used in loudspeakers, as coating material and as insulation. Shrink tubings is also very well suited for insulating cables or for guiding gases.
BIEGLO offers various PEEK SF products:
- Shrink tubings
Rods, tubes and sheets can also be supplied reinforced with carbon or glass fibers, with PTFE and modified with carbon fibers, PTFE and graphite. In addition, BIEGLO can also offer different colors for PEEK SF products.
PEEK granules and powders have the following applications:
- Extrusion of: sheets, rods and tubes, filaments and foils
- Injection molding of semi-finished and finished parts
- Hot compression moulding of semi-finished products
- Spincasting of large diameter pipes
- Compound production
- As matrix material for composites
- For coatings of other materials
BIEGLO offers granules and powders of different viscosities of virgin PEEK:
- CoPEEK 012G: High viscosity
- CoPEEK 021G: Middle viscosity
- CoPEEK 085G: Low viscosity
- CoPEEK 125G: Very low viscosity
On demand BIEGLO can also offer:
- Fine PEEK powder of different viscosities
- Ultra fine PEEK powder of different viscosities
- High filtered CoPEEK
Our Portfolio of finished Parts will be available soon.
Products will be launched here in a few days.
Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) belongs to the family of thermoplastics and is located at the very top of the polymer pyramid with a temperature resistance of up to 240 ° C. PEEK is known to be self-lubricating and as a thermoplastic, PEEK can also be recycled.
PEEK is used in the aerospace and automotive industries because of its low weight. Due to the very good Biocompatibility it is also used in the medical industry. In the oil & gas as well as in the food industry PEEK is applied because of its very good chemical resistance.
In these industries PEEK is often used back-up rings for seals or as a plain bearing, and PEEK can also be used as a matrix material in composites.
PEEK finished parts might be:
- seals and gaskets
In addition BIEGLO can produce parts according to customer drawings. PEEK finished parts can also be produced using compounds with PTFE, carbon- or glassfibers.
