PEEK is considered as one of the world’s highest performing functional materials. It has excellent biocompatibility, chemical resistance, mechanical properties, and thermal properties. PEEK is a semicrystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperatures. PEEK has an excellent biocompatibility and close to bone modulus, which allow it to become a favorable material for implantation.
It is often used in demanding applications such as aerospace, automotive, chemical, and medical industries.
