PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) is a high performance technical polymer, from the Polyketone family (PEK, PEEK, PEEKK, PEAK, PEEKK, PEKK, PEKEKK). It offers exceptional chemical and mechanical characteristics, namely: resistance to heat, wear, traction and deformation. Its high weight / strength ratio is often used to replace certain metals.
Categorized as semi-crystalline (30% crystalline and 70% amorphous), this material makes the printing process more complex, requiring some experience and a suitable 3D printer. PEEK requires an extrusion temperature of between 400 and 450°C, as well as a closed and heated printing chamber.
Sectors: Medical, Aerospace, Aeronautics and Automotive.
Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) PEEK polymers are obtained by step-growth polymerization. PEEK is a semicrystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperatures. PEEK is regarded as one of the highest performing engineering thermoplastics in the world. PEEK is used to fabricate items used in demanding applications in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas and medical industries.
