PEEK Machining

PEEK Machined Parts

PEEK machined part

Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a colorless organic polymer thermoplastic used in engineering applications. Vanderveer Industrial Plastics is AS 9100 certified, and deals in the following grades: MIL-P-46183 Type 2 Class 1 & 3 (other grades available upon request). PEEK can easily be fabricated to any close tolerance. Vanderveer specializes on in custom CNC machining for industrial plastics.

PEEK GRADES

PEEK (Unfilled)

PEEK (Unfilled) machining sample

Meets MIL-P-46183 Type 2, Class 1

This general purpose grade is unreinforced and offers the highest elongation and toughness of all PEEK grades. Available in natural, ranging from light brown to tan, and black.

Black PEEK is ideal for instrument components where aesthetics are important, as well as for seal components where ductility and inertness are important.

All unfilled PEEK grades comply with FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.2415 for repeated food-contact.

PEEK (30% Glass Filled) machined part

PEEK (30% Glass Filled)

Meets MIL-P-46183 Type 2, Class 3

The addition of glass fibers significantly reduces the expansion rate and increases the flexural modulus of PEEK. This grade is ideal for structural applications that require improved strength, stiffness, or stability, especially at temperatures above 300°F (150°C). Glass-filled PEEK ranges from light brown to tan in color.
