peek 450G rod

Peek 450G rod is formed by extrusion
Description

Product Overview

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Inherently good wear and abrasion resistance
  • Unaffected by continuous exposure to hot water or steam

PEEK grades offer chemical and hydrolysis resistance similar to PPS, but can operate at higher temperatures. PEEK offers steam and wear resistance, while carbon-reinforced PEEK provides excellent wear capabilities. Our latest grade, PEEK HPV, offers outstanding bearing performance. PEEK can be used continuously to 480°F (250°C) and in hot water or steam without permanent loss in physical properties. For hostile environments, PEEK is a high strength alternative to fluoropolymers. PEEK carries a V-O flammability rating and exhibits very low smoke and toxic gas emission when exposed to flame.
 PEEK 450G 
     This general purpose grade is unreinforced and offers the highest elongation and toughness of all PEEK grades. The newly available black PEEK 450G is ideal for instrument components where aesthetics are important, as well as for seal components where ductility and inertness are important.
     PEEK 450G is used for vacuum wand handles during semiconductor manufacturing. They typically contact heat and common process chemicals in use. (Prior materials: Nylon, Acetal)
    In applications ranging from aircraft to oil field drilling, components machined from  PEEK improve performance and reliability. (Prior materials: Reinforced PTFE, PPS, Bronze)

 

PEEK material (chemically known as polyetheretherketone) is manufactured by YBP in standard stock shapes for machining. It is extruded in sheet, rod and tube that may use Victrex® PEEK 450G or Solvay KetaSpire® KT-820 polymer. PEEK is a unique semi crystalline, engineering thermoplastic that also offers excellent chemical compatibility.

Parts manufactured from high temperature plastic PEEK polymer can also operate at temperatures up to 260°C (480°F) and have a melting point around 341°C (646°F). PEEK plastic is often used in hot water or steam environments because it maintains physical properties such as flexural and tensile strength at a high level despite the severe environment. Polyetheretherketone is often viewed as one of the engineering thermoplastics that tends to command a high price, however experienced users have come to realise the added value that PEEK materials bring by offering the possibility of manufactured parts that are lighter, stronger and able to survive longer periods under harsh conditions.
