PEEK Material (c) Boedeker Plastics 2001 PEEK HT ™ is a new unique high performance materials developed for applications that demand superior high temperature resistance. With a glass transition temperature of 315°F (157°C) and a melting temperature of 705°F (374°C), PEEK HT ™ delivers extended high temperature performance while offering all the key characteristics of natural PEEK ™ PolyEtherEther-Ketone polymer, including toughness, strength, and chemical resistance.

Across a wide range of demanding industrial, automotive and aerospace applications, PEEK HT ™ polymer offers manufacturers a premium material which is a more cost-effective, lightweight alternative to metals. From engine compartment applications to sub-sea connectors and heat exchanger parts, this advanced engineering material provides unlimited design freedom, high precision reproducibility and long-term product reliability.

PEEK HT ™ is available in Natural color (a very light brown or tan) in rod form only (3/4 to 2 inch diameters).

•  Superior high temperature performance
  -  retention of mechanical and physical properties to temperatures 54°F (30°C) higher than standard PEEK
  -  up to 3 times the wear resistance of standard PEEK at high temperatures
  -  long-term creep and fatigue resistance over a wide temperature range
  -  substantially higher tensile strength and flexural modulus at 482°F (250°C)
•  Improved compressive strength
•  Exceptional resistance to chemicals, solvents, fuels
•  Inherent low flammability, low smoke emission
•  Good electrical properties
•  Excellent hydrolysis resistance
