Characteristics

amboflon® PEEK is characterized by its outstanding properties even at very high temperatures. The relative thermal index is 260°C. amboflon® PEEK remains dimensionally stable up to just above the glass transition temperature. Its mechanical properties such as the very high strength, rigidity, toughness, excellent abrasion resistance and excellent lubricity are retained. amboflon® PEEK shows a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a ductile behavior even below the glass transition temperature, which allows applications in a wide temperature range. It is also possible to use at low temperatures. The creep tendency is very low and the fatigue strength is high. The good electrical properties over a wide temperature and frequency range enable many applications in the electrical industry.

 

Resistance

amboflon® PEEK is resistant to almost all organic and inorganic chemicals. It has extensive resistance to non-oxidizing acids, alkalis, oils, greases, brake fluids and other media from the motor vehicle and aerospace industries. In addition, amboflon® PEEK is resistant to gamma and x-radiation. The weather resistance is also excellent.

 

Due to their excellent resistance to hydrolysis, parts made from amboflon® PEEK can be repeatedly steam-sterilized without appreciable losses in the properties. This allows for use in the medical and food industry.

 

Flammability

amboflon® PEEK is very difficult to ignite. It has an extremely low flue gas density and is therefore classified according to UL-94 (DIN EN 60695-11-10) in V-0.

 

Reinforced Compounds

The very good property profile of amboflon® PEEK can be enhanced significantly by adding fillers, e.g. Glass or carbon fiber, carbon powder, graphite or PTFE. The dimensional stability temperature can thereby be increased close to the melting point. The rigidity and dimensional stability is increased by glass and carbon fibers in the plastic and the tribological behavior is improved. The addition of PTFE or graphite causes an increase in the tribological properties such as attrition and friction.

 

Processing

Process: extrusion, isostatic pressing, coating, injection molding, machining of semifinished products

Pre-drying: 3 hours at 150-200°C

Processing temperatures:

 - Melt temperature: 370-420°C

 - Injection mold tool temperature: 170 - 210°C

amboflon® PEEK is easy to glue and weld.

Application areas

PEEK is one of the most frequently used high-performance plastics and is used especially for heavily stressed parts. Due to the high strength, rigidity, ductility and chemical resistance to aggressive media, amboflon® PEEK is suitable for a wide range of applications from the mechanical engineering, the electrical industry as well as high-temperature steam sterilization for the food industry and medical technology.
