PEEK rod (polyether ether ketone) is an extremely tough, wear resistant plastic with excellent resistance to high temperatures and energy radiation. It is very dimensionally stable and has a high mechanical bearing strength. PEEK rod also offers excellent chemical resistance and a high resistance to hydrolysis, even against super-heated steam. It is also electrically insulating, has good sliding properties and is easily machined. PEEK rod is available to buy online at PAR Direct by clicking the link above.


Nuclear and medical industries. Machined components including friction bearings, piston parts, wafer supports and plug parts.
