PEEK Ultra Detectable

Overview

What is the Material: PEEK Ultra Detectable is a semi-crystalline material filled with a multi detectable filler.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring increased food safety, while maintaining properties of other PEEK materials including wear resistance, dimensional stability, mechanical properties, chemical resistance, and temperature resistance.

Other Considerations: The detectable filler makes this material detectable using x-ray imaging, metal detection, and by optical scanners due to the addition on the blue pigment. This material has notable hydrolysis/steam resistance.
