Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) Carbon Fiber Processing

Plastic Molded Concepts, Inc. offers Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) carbon fiber processing, utilizing the RTP 2287 LF and R-331150 formulations for the construction of high quality parts for a range of industries. Typical applications include piston parts, pumps, compressor plate valves, cable insulation and HPLC columns. Polyether Ether Keytone (PEEK) is a colorless organic polymer semicrystalline thermoplastic, with a low flow and 40% carbon fiber reinforcement. This material offers continuous service at high temperatures, with low moisture absorption and excellent resistance to fatigue, hydrolysis, and chemicals. The addition of carbon reinforcing enhances compressive strength and stiffness for optimized load bearing capability. PEEK carbon fiber material is ideal for components where thermal, chemical, and combustion properties are critical for performance.

Our injection molding and drying operations are specifically established to include the proper precautions for the correct handling of this specialty material, including use of the required desiccant type dryer. Customers in the aerospace, medical, military and electronics industries among others have trusted Plastic Molded Concepts, Inc. with their engineering resin precision components. Our experience ensures that the products created with PEEK fulfill their intended performance specifications, and meet the rigorous codes of industry regulatory agencies.
