PEEK GF30 rods possess enhanced mechanical properties compared to unfilled PEEK, making them suitable for demanding applications in various industries:
High strength and stiffness: The glass fiber reinforcement significantly improves the mechanical properties of PEEK, providing high tensile and flexural strength, as well as improved resistance to deformation.
Excellent chemical resistance: PEEK GF30 exhibits resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, solvents, and hydrocarbons.
High temperature resistance: PEEK GF30 has a high glass transition temperature (Tg) of around 143°C to 150°C, allowing it to maintain its properties at elevated temperatures.
Excellent wear and friction properties: PEEK GF30 offers low friction coefficients and excellent wear resistance, making it suitable for applications involving moving parts.
Electrical properties: PEEK GF30 has good electrical insulating properties and is often used in electrical connectors and insulators.
Dimensional stability: The glass fiber reinforcement helps minimize dimensional changes due to temperature variations, making PEEK GF30 suitable for applications with tight tolerances.
PEEK GF30 is a tough and strong material, with good machinability. It has a high melting point, and therefore does not clog the cutting tools as with nylon or similar polymer materials.
Machining processes such as milling, turning, drilling, and threading are typically used to processes PEEK GF30 rods.
Cutting tools made from carbide or high-speed steel are commonly utilised, with careful consideration given to tool geometry and cutting parameters.
Adequate cooling and lubrication during machining help maintain dimensional accuracy and extend tool life.
Aerospace: PEEK GF30 is used in aircraft components such as structural parts, fasteners, bearings, and electrical connectors.
Automotive: Applications include bushings, gears, seals, and electrical connectors in engines, transmissions, and electrical systems.
Oil and Gas: PEEK GF30 is employed in downhole tools, seals, and connectors due to its chemical resistance and high strength in aggressive environments.
Medical: PEEK GF30 is used in orthopaedic implants, surgical instruments, dental instruments, and medical device components due to its biocompatibility and sterilization resistance.
Electronics: PEEK GF30 finds use in electrical connectors, insulators, and circuit boards due to its electrical properties and dimensional stability.
Chemical processing: PEEK GF30 is employed in pump components, valves, seals, and other chemical processing equipment due to its resistance to chemicals and high temperatures.
