PEEK Seal Material Offers Robust Advantages for Hostile, High Temp Environments

PEEK seal rings are typically used in hostile, high temperature environments where other materials cannot effectively withstand such conditions.

Check out PEEK seal material properties, benefits, applications and configuration possibilities below to find out if PEEK seal rings are right for your application.

PEEK Seal Material Properties

PEEK seal material is made from a high-grade thermoplastic polymer that’s known for its excellent mechanical and corrosion resistant properties, which are able to be maintained even at high temperatures.

It also has excellent thermal degradation resistance, and is able to withstand both organic and aqueous environments.

Compared to most thermoplastic materials, PEEK melts at a relatively high temperature (typically around 649 degrees Fahrenheit). At operating service temperatures, PPEK is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit.

Because PEEK is so robust, it’s considered to be a high-end engineering plastic.

Advantages

PEEK seals are known for their ability to enhance product performance by extending service life, as well as providing increased load capacity and higher RPM in dynamic applications over a wide range of environmental conditions.

In summary, the benefits of PEEK seals include:

  • High Temperature Tolerance
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Thermal Degradation Resistant
  • Chemical Resistant
  • Withstands Organic & Aqueous Environments

Applications

PEEK seal rings are used for pistons, bearings, pumps & valves. It is also one of the very few materials that can be used in ultra-high vacuum applications.

PEEK seal rings are commonly found in the following industries:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Oil & Gas
  • Military
  • Medical
