Polyetheretherketone at Aline Components

Polyetheretherketone is part of the new PEEK family of thermoplastics offering new levels of performance, with advantages in the plastic manufacturing process and final results that can make plastic parts that were previously unavailable. PEEK material can replace the use of metal in some cases, and bearings, piston parts, and valves have all been manufactured using polyetheretherketone. Its heat resistance makes it useful as a high temperature plastic where the properties of plastic are desired in challenging environmental conditions. Aline Components is a top notch facility with over 50 years of experience and we carry all of the most up-to-date materials for plastic injection molding of the highest quality, including PEEK material.

Benefits of Polyetheretherketone

As the use of PEEK material advances, new opportunities for design in critical industries have created innovative plastic parts. For example, new implants and fasteners for the biomedical industry and hydraulic valves for the automotive industry have been made possible because of polyetheretherketone’s superior quality. High-temperature plastic can now endure greater temperatures and greater temperature differentials and still retain their dimensional integrity.

In many ways PEEK material represents the current state-of-the art in plastic injection molding and plastic manufacturing. Polyetheretherketone has improved upon the best all around material characteristics that so many manufacturers have looked for in plastic injection molding. PEEK material reduces weight, cost and gives you new levels of design freedom, and the opportunity to expand the horizon of what’s possible.
