High Performance > 300°F | Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)

TECAPEEK CF30 carbon filled PEEK

TECAPEEKĀ® CF30 is a 30% carbon filled version of Ensinger's standard TECAPEEK which offers improved strength and stiffness as well as greater load bearing capabilities for those applications that require it.

  • Extremely high thermal and mechanical capabilities
  • Very high continuous working temperature
  • Increased stiffness and bearing properties
  • Excellent abrasion and wear resistance
  • A superior dielectric at high temperatures and frequencies
  • Exceptional chemical resistance
    TECAPEEK™ CF30 is insoluble in all common solvents.
  • Very high level of dimensional stability
  • Inherently low flammability rating – UL94 (V-0)
  • Excellent hydrolysis resistance
    TECAPEEK™ CF30 has an excellent resistance to hydrolysis in boiling water and superheated steam

TECAPEEK™s exceptional property profile enables it to be utilized in many of the most critical areas in general industry, as well as in the automotive, marine, nuclear, oil well, electronics, medical and aerospace fields.
