Carbon-reinforced PEEK is stronger and stiffer than normal PEEK.
Carbon-reinforced PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) is a variant of PEEK that incorporates short carbon fibers into the material. These carbon fibers enhance the stiffness and strength of the material, making it even stronger and stiffer than standard PEEK. The thermal properties of carbon-reinforced PEEK remain similar to those of normal PEEK.
The technical properties of carbon-reinforced PEEK are as follows:
|Tensile Strength||96 - 105 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||8000 - 8200 MPa|
|Tensile Elongation||3 - 6.9%|
|Flexural Strength||136 - 140 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||3063 - 8300 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||265°C|
Please note that the values provided for the technical properties are approximate ranges and can vary depending on specific formulations, manufacturing processes, and testing conditions. It is recommended to refer to the manufacturer's documentation or data sheets for precise and up-to-date technical specifications for the specific brand and formulation of carbon-reinforced PEEK.
