High Performance > 300°F | Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)

TECAPEEK ID metal detectable PEEK

As engineers continue to push the limit of what they ask their high performance engineering materials to accomplish on the production line, the need has arisen for thermoplastics that in the unlikely event of their failure, will reduce the risk of product contamination, and allow for the easy detection of small pieces using standard detection methods. TECAPEEK ID is a metal detectable PEEK made with Victrex® PEEK 450G polymer
