PEEK washers (chemically known as Polyetheretherketone) offer a unique combination of properties for some of the most extreme applications. PEEK is classified as semicrystalline thermoplastic and high purity polymer, offering excellent mechanical strength and chemical resistance at high temperatures. PEEK washers offer a high strength alternative to PTFE fluoropolymers.
KAXITE can make custom PEEK Machined Parts to your specifications or drawings.
PEEK Tube has the strength required to withstand continuous use at HPLC pressure without swelling or bursting, and is not affected by halide salts, high strength buffers, or other aggressive mobile phases that corrode stainless steel. The polymer surface will not leach metal ions into the eluent or extract metal-sensitive components from the sample.
PEEK Sheet is known throughout the machined parts industry as one of the toughest, highest performing engineering plastic materials on the market today. PEEK Sheet is a high-performance thermoplastic that is tough, durable, firm, and creep resistant. It offers excellent thermal, chemical, and hydrolysis resistance as well as excellent resistance to abrasion and dynamic fatigue. Its ability to run at high continuous temperatures up to (480º F) without permanent property degradation along with stable electrical properties makes PEEK an excellent alternative to fluoropolymers in aggressive environments. PEEK Sheet has also been shown to exhibit very low smoke and toxic gas emission when exposed to flame.
PEEK rod (polyether ether ketone) is an extremely tough, wear resistant plastic with excellent resistance to high temperatures and energy radiation. PEEK rod is very dimensionally stable and has a high mechanical bearing strength. PEEK rod also offers excellent chemical resistance and a high resistance to hydrolysis, even against super-heated steam. PEEK rod is also electrically insulating, has good sliding properties and is easily machined. Natural PEEK rod is available to buy online at PAR Direct by clicking the link above.
