PolyEtherEtherKetone, also known as PEEK, is a high performance engineering thermoplastic that offers the same chemical and water resistance as PPS (PolyPhenylene Sulfide), but can withstand greater temperatures. PEEK can be continuously used in water or steam without permanent loss in physical properties to a temperature of 480°F (250°C).
Since 1998, unfilled PEEK has been approved by the FDA and can be used as a high strength alternative to fluoropolymers for hostile environments. Carrying a V-0 flammability rating, Peek exhibits low smoke/toxic gas emission when exposed to open flame.
