Ketron Peek Sheet | Plastic Stockist

Plastic Stockist provides a fantastic range of Ketron Peek which is the most popular advanced plastic material. This material is often used to replace PTFE when higher mechanical load bearing capacity is needed. Available in PEEK 1000, HPV, GF30, and CA30 grades in sheet.

Ketron Peek - available in natural (brownish grey) / black

Examples of components made from PEEK grades: pump components, valve seats, bearings, rollers, gears, and high temperature insulators, components exposed to boiling water or steam.

Ketron Peek 1000 - available in natural (brownish grey) / black

The composition of the raw materials used for the production of the natural stock shapes complies with the directives of the European Union and the American FDA regulations concerning plastic materials intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. These features, added to its excellent sterilisability by means of steam, dry heat, ethylene oxide and gamma irradiation, make this grade very popular in medical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries.

Ketron Peek-HPV (PEEK + CF + PTFE + Graphite) - available in black

The addition of carbon fibres, PTFE and graphite to virgin PEEK results in a 'bearing grade'. Its excellent triological properties (low friction, long wear and high pressure-velocity capabilities) make this grade especially suited for bearing and wear applications.

Ketron Peek-GF30 (PEEK-GF30) - available in natural (brownish grey)

This 30% glass fibre reinforced grade offers higher stiffness and creep resistance than Ketron Peek-1000 and has a much better dimensional stability. Ketron Peek-GF30 is very appropriate for structural parts carrying high static loads for long periods of time at elevated temperatures. Its suitability for sliding parts, however, is to be carefully examined since the glass fibres tend to abrade the mating service

Ketron Peek-CA30 (PEEK-CA30) black

This 30% carbon fibre reinforced grade combines even higher stiffness, mechanical strength and creep resistance than Ketron PEEK-GF30 with an optimum wear resistance. Moreover, the carbon fibres provide 3.5 times higher thermal conductivity than virgin PEEK, dissipating heat from the bearing surface faster.

Common uses for Ketron Peek Sheet

Ketron Peek is commonly used for valve seats, dosing valves and pump wear rings. Ketron Peek has a unique combination of high mechanical properties, temperature resistance and excellent chemical resistance, and is widely selected as a replacement for metal components.
