Product Announcement from Zeus
Zeus PEEK Drawn Fiber has excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance, tensile strength, and tenacity. PEEK Drawn Fiber also performs excellently in extreme temperatures up to 500°F/260°C, produces low smoke and gas emissions, and has high elongation properties. The lightweight material also has superior friction and wear properties when used in abrasive environments.
Zeus is currently capable of extruding strands in sizes ranging from 0.0030 - 0.040 inches. To meet the specific industry requirements for braiding identification, Zeus offers the product in natural, black, red, green, yellow, blue, orange, and violet. Yarn extrusions and custom monofilament are also available.
Applications and Industries
Zeus PEEK Drawn Fiber is used in the aerospace, automotive, and textile industries. It can be used to create a braided sleeve or over-braid that is both expandable and flexible. The woven braiding can then be placed over existing wire assemblies to guard against chaffing. The material is also used as a component in filters (semiconductor filters included) and conveyer belts.
