PEEK Fabrication Technologies for High Performance System Solutions

PEEK is a linear aromatic semi-crystalline thermoplastic widely regarded as one of the highest performing polymers. Its processing versatility, combined with cutting edge fabrication technologies, promises new approaches to application design and development. Learn how the properties and benefits of PEEK polymer are making it a proven metal replacement solution in energy, transportation, electronics, and industrial applications. Discover how engineers are using fabrication technologies such as over-molding, laser welding, and thermoplastic bagging with PEEK and PEEK-based composites to enhance functional performance while reducing system costs. Find out about laser sintering techniques tailored for high performance polymers and how the oil and gas industry is solving the industry's toughest challenges using PEEK polymer for pipe and tubing.

Key Take-Aways:
  • Learn about PEEK secondary fabrication technologies such as over-molding, laser welding, and laser sintering
  • Hear of a new thermoplastic bagging concept developed for composites fabrication
  • Find out about advanced pipe and lining processes using PEEK polymer
  • Discover the many benefits of PEEK polymer as a metal replacement solution
