Research peek polymer

PEEK polymer is regarded as one of the highest performing engineering thermoplastics in the world

What is PEEK?

PolyEtherEtherKetone (PEEK) belongs to the high-performance polymers and is a member of the PAEK (Poly Aryl Ether Ketones) family of polymers, a family with over 300 members but only a handful of which have been commercialised. VICTREX™ PEEK is ideally suited to extreme and demanding environments. While alternative materials can meet specific needs, PEEK can support multiple requirements.
