Ketron® PEEK (CM) offers chemical and hydrolysis resistance similar to PPS, but can operate at higher temperatures. Unreinforced, compression molded Ketron® PEEK offers good wear resistance. It 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.
Advantages of Ketron® PEEK (CM):
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Very low moisture absorption
- Inherently good wear and abrasion resistance
- Unaffected by continuous exposure to hot water or steam
