Arolux Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic offering a combination of high-performance properties, including: high temperature resistance, good wear and abrasion resistance, excellent dimensional stability and exceptional chemical resistance to organics, acids, bases and hydrolysis in boiling water and steam. The tensile and flexural properties of PEEK are among the highest of all thermoplastic resins. PEEK is an outstanding electrical insulator offering superior dielectric strength with low loss at high temperatures and frequencies.

PEEK is well-known as an excellent choice for use with elevated temperatures, with a continuous use temperature of over 450°F. PEEK (polyetheretherketone) can be used continuously in hot fresh/saltwater or steam without permanent loss in physical properties. For acidic environments, PEEK is a high strength alternative to fluoropolymers.

In thinner gauge film (~0.10» and less) PEEK material will be translucent. As gauge increases, the material will become opaque beige in appearance.
