PEEK grades offer chemical and hydrolysis resistance similar to PPS but can operate at higher temperatures. Unreinforced, extruded PEEK offers good wear resistance and can be used continuously to 480°F (250°C). It can also be used 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. Structural & Chemical Integrity to 480°F (250°C)
