- Excellent strength, and stiffness up to 500°F (260°C)
- Low coefficient of friction and high wear resistance
- Chemically resistant to common chemicals including acids, salts, solvents, oils and steam
- Low out gassing, low particle generation and inherent purity
- Unique physical, thermal & electrical properties
Polyetheretherketone washers or PEEK washers or Victrex® washers offer a unique combination of properties for some of the most extreme applications. PEEK / Victrex washers are known for their excellent wear resistance, best in class fatigue resistance, high purity and excellent chemical resistance to organics, acids and bases.
Depending on the application, PEEK washers can be reinforced with glass fibers for improved strength and stiffness properties. Reinforced PEEK washers offer greater mechanical robustness especially in applications beyond 350°F (175°C).
PEEK washers are well suited for applications in chemical processing, electronics, transportation, healthcare and other industrial uses.
Washers made from customer specified PEEK grades are available upon request. See our online store (right side) for common PEEK washers or contact us for specialty or quantity requests.
Washer Types: Flat Washers
Common PEEK Washer Grades
PEEK 100% / Unfilled
PEEK, with no fillers is unreinforced and 100% polymer. Even without glass or carbon fiber reinforcement, this one of the strongest polymers we offer and well suited for a variety of applications including FDA food contact and other applications requireing high purity.
PEEK Glass Fiber Reinforced
PEEK 30% Glass Fiber Reinforced provide the same chemical resistance and natural PEEK but nearly doubles in tensile strength.
PEEK Carbon Fiber Reinforced
PEEK 20% Carbon Fiber Reinforced provides approximately 2.5 times the strength of pure PEEK.
PEEK Extreme is our proprietary receipe for the highest strength PEEK utilizing carbon fiber reinforcement. This version of PEEK over 3 times stronger than standard unreinforced PEEK.
