Advanced Materials: PEEK

PEEK is the industry standard abbreviation for Polyetheretherketone, a semi-crystalline polymer made of linear aromatic chains.

PEEK is a high-performance plastic with significant advantages over all other thermoplastics. With its 260 C degrees of temperature resistance, excellent mechanical properties, good self-lubricating properties, excellent chemical corrosion-resistance (except strong nitric acid and concentrated sulfuric acid), inherently flame retardancy, peeling resistance, excellent tribological properties, and anti-radiation properties, it is the default thermoplastic for hundreds of critical applications.
