What Plastic Material Can Handle Summer

The dog days are over,the kids are returning to school, and the sunburns are almost all healed up, except one plastic material can handle summer-like conditions year-round without breaking a sweat. Which plastic material is it? – you guessed it:  PEEK.

PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) Material

PEEK is one of the most common and popular type of engineered thermoplastic for applications requiring excellent thermal, combustion, wear, and chemical properties and is the most requested high performance plastic we work with here at Tamshell.  It could easily be labeled the single, most diverse plastic material utilized across countless industries and applications – from Aerospace, to Space itself.

Natural or ‘unfilled’ PEEK can withstand temperatures up to 480° F, resist many harsh chemicals it comes in contact with, and absorbs minimal amounts of fluids.Glass-Filled PEEK upholds all of the same properties that of Natural PEEK, with the added values of even better resistance to harsher chemical contact, with excellent structural properties.Bearing-Grade PEEK retains great bearing and wear properties by way of strengthening additives, enhancing it’s all around utilization in high-pressure and load bearing situations.
