What is this PEEK material?
The short of it: PEEK is a super durable thermoplastic with outstanding tone.
The scientific stuff: Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a semi-crystalline, high-performance engineering thermoplastic. This rigid opaque material offers a unique combination of mechanical properties, resistance to chemicals, wear, fatigue and creep as well as exceptionally high temperature resistance, up to 260°C (480°F).
Thanks to these properties, PEEK and its composites are widely used in aerospace, automotive, structural, high temperature electrical and biomedical applications.
Despite high price of the polymer, the added value that PEEK materials bring by offering the possibility of manufacturing parts include lightweight, strength or toughness and able to survive longer in harsh environments.
