Information on PEEK GF30 Sheet:
PEEK GF30 (Polyetheretherketone Glass Fiber 30%) sheet is a variation of PEEK that incorporates 30% glass fiber reinforcement. This reinforcement enhances the mechanical properties of PEEK and provides additional strength and stiffness.
Here's an overview of PEEK GF30 sheet properties, machinability, and applications:
Properties of PEEK GF30 Sheets:
Enhanced Mechanical Strength: The addition of glass fibers significantly improves the tensile strength, flexural strength, and stiffness of PEEK GF30 sheets compared to unfilled PEEK.
Dimensional Stability: PEEK GF30 sheets exhibit excellent dimensional stability, maintaining their shape and size even under varying temperatures and loads.
High Temperature Resistance: PEEK GF30 retains the high temperature resistance of standard PEEK, with a continuous use temperature of up to 250-300 degrees Celsius (482-572 degrees Fahrenheit).
Chemical Resistance: PEEK GF30 sheets maintain the excellent chemical resistance of standard PEEK, making them resistant to acids, bases, solvents, and hydrocarbons.
Wear and Abrasion Resistance: The glass fiber reinforcement enhances the wear and abrasion resistance of PEEK GF30, making it suitable for applications involving sliding or rubbing contact.
Low Friction Coefficient: PEEK GF30 exhibits a low coefficient of friction, reducing frictional wear and improving sliding performance.
Machinability of PEEK GF30 Sheets: While PEEK GF30 is more abrasive than unfilled PEEK due to the presence of glass fibers, it can still be machined using appropriate techniques.
Here are some considerations for machining PEEK GF30 sheets:
Cutting Tools: Use sharp tools made from carbide or diamond-coated tools for improved tool life and efficiency.
Cutting Speeds: Optimal cutting speeds for PEEK GF30 are typically lower than those used for unfilled PEEK to manage the abrasive nature of the glass fibers.
Cooling and Lubrication: Adequate cooling and lubrication are crucial to dissipate heat and minimize tool wear. Air or water-based coolants/lubricants are commonly used.
Chip Control: Effective chip control is essential to prevent chip buildup and maintain cutting performance. Appropriate chip evacuation techniques or chip breakers should be utilized.
Applications of machined PEEK GF30 sheet components:
PEEK GF30 sheets are used in various industries where enhanced mechanical properties are required. Some common applications include:
Automotive: PEEK GF30 is employed in automotive components such as gears, bearings, pistons, and bushings that require high strength, wear resistance, and dimensional stability.
Aerospace: PEEK GF30 finds application in aerospace components like aircraft structural parts, engine components, and interior parts due to its lightweight nature and high mechanical performance.
Electrical and Electronics: PEEK GF30 is utilized in electrical connectors, insulators, coil formers, and other electronic components that require high strength, insulation, and resistance to high temperatures.
Industrial: PEEK GF30 is used in various industrial applications, including pump components, valves, gears, and seals, where excellent mechanical properties and chemical resistance are required.
These are just a few examples of the applications where PEEK GF30 sheets are commonly employed due to their enhanced mechanical properties, machinability, and resistance to high temperatures and chemicals.
