PEEK has long been a highly regarded engineering polymer for an almost infinite variety of applications. One of the reasons it remains popular is its processability: PEEK is well adapted to a number of polymer processing techniques. In this post, we are going to discuss four processing methods for manufacturing components from PEEK.
As you probably already know, PEEK is a high-performance engineering polymer that is often used for seals and bearings in some of the most aggressive, harsh service environments you can imagine. Such properties make it perfect for use in the petrochemical industry. In fact, there are six specific reasons why PEEK has become a go-to material for oil and gas applications.
