PEEK is a high-temperature-resistant thermoplastic and can be used continuously up to 260° C and in hot water or steam. It displays outstanding mechanical performance in both high temperature and cryogenic conditions. High performance tribological properties and very low wear are further characteristics of ZELLAMID® 1500 T with high pressure-velocity capabilities. The material has good engineering properties, as it is tough, strong, rigid and creep resistant.
When exposed to a flame there is very low smoke and toxic gas emission. Unfilled ZELLAMID® 1500 PEEK stock shapes are compliant for food contact (BfR, FDA). The material also resists a wide range of solvents and organic solvents. It is self-extinguishing and carries a flammability UL 94 V-0 rating. ZELLAMID® 1500 has a balanced profile of properties such as low level of creep combined with a high modulus of elasticity.
PEEK is a high strength alternative to Fluorpolymers featuring better performance in wear and abrasion applications. It is a material with outstanding tribological properties.
