PEEK Applications

 


Aerospace

PEEK is your lightweight material solution where manufacturing costs, durability in harsh environments and processing flexibility play a significant role. For landing gear hubcaps, aircraft door handles, cable ties, composite fasteners and many more aerospace applications, this outstanding material offers the following benefits:

  • Good fatigue performance
  • Overall weight reduction which leads to lower fuel consumption
  • Excellent high temperature performance
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Superb hydrolysis resistance
  • Wide thermal operating range (-196°C to 260°C

Automotive

Exhibits an excellent combination of strength, durability and heat resistance. PEEK is the material solution where system weight, energy efficiency and a wide range of operating temperatures  (-196°C to 260°C) play a significant role in your operations. For leading edge automotive applications, PEEK offers the following solutions:

  • High fatigue strength and ductility
  • Reduction of carbon dioxide emission without compromising performance, reliability or safety
  • Vibration and noise reduction
  • Design flexibility
  • Wide range temperature resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • High wear resistance

Oil & Gas

PEEK is the material of choice for your oil and gas applications which require high quality equipment and tool systems to extreme temperatures, corrosive fluids and gases, and high pressures. For antenna sleeves, valve seats, electrical connectors, primary seals, impellers and many more system components, benefit from the outstanding characteristics of PEEK.
