PAEK: Characteristics, Properties and Applications

PAEK: Characteristics, Properties and Applications
Friday, April 19, 2019
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CDT

Applications for polymeric materials are getting harsher, which has increased the demand for more extreme materials. The polyaryletherketone (PAEK) family of thermoplastics can resist high temperatures and aggressive chemicals, exhibit low permeation and have outstanding mechanical properties. The PAEK family includes PEKK and PEEK polymers (in addition to others), but these are two very different materials. This webinar will outline PAEK technologies, their main characteristics and how tuning molecular structures can adjust properties for the final application. Multiple processing methods will also be discussed, showcasing how to make an array of diverse parts that enable many options for a variety of applications.
