Glass fiber reinforced PEEK is one of the highest-performance plastics available in the market. It exhibits exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties.
Glass fiber PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) is a reinforced polymer composite that offers enhanced creep strength and dimensional stability, along with high mechanical strength and rigidity. It provides exceptional resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including automotive fluids, and is insoluble in common solvents. Additionally, it possesses inherent flame resistance. These properties make glass fiber PEEK suitable for applications where parts are exposed to high static loads over extended periods in high-temperature conditions. However, it is less suitable for bearing or wear applications.
The technical properties of glass fiber PEEK are as follows:
|Tensile Strength||105 - 160 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||7250 - 9000 MPa|
|Tensile Elongation||2.4 - 2.5%|
|Flexural Strength||130 - 250 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||7625 - 8500 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||300°C|
|HDT (1.8 MPa)||323°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's always 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 glass fiber PEEK.
