  • Laser Micromachining PEEK (polyetheretherketone) Films
    High Performance SemiCrystalline PEEK (polyetheretherketone) films are drawing interest within the industrial marketplace. PEEK has the characteristics of a versatile high performance film with a high dielectric property, resistance to chemical corrosion and the ability to withstand higher
  • Advancement of Thermoplastics in Commercial Aerospace
    systems and manufacturing technology to fulfill these goals. The industry responded with materials like Polyetherimide (PEI) and Polyarylsulphone (PAS), replacing flame retardant Polycarbonate, Nylons and thermoset composite for interior use; Polyetheretherketone, (PEEK), replacing metallic components
  • Medical Device Link .
    Implantable-grade polyetheretherketone (PEEK) high-performance thermoplastic has been extensively used in the development of spinal-fusion cages and plates since its introduction in 1999. Interest in the material continues to spread throughout the orthopaedic market. Its properties can be tailored
  • Laser Welding Carbon Nanocomposites
    . In the current study, direct diode and Nd:YAG solidstate lasers were used to transmission weld -carbon nanocomposite materials. The experimentation was focused on exploiting the infrared absorbing characteristics of the carbon nanocomposites. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) based polymer was used
  • Medical Device Link .
    ) is manufactured from biocompatible polyetheretherketone (PEEK-OPTIMA, Invibio Ltd, Thornton, UK). The benefits this implant offers include reduced operating times, better bone fusion, less shrinkage and loss of height, and improved spinal alignment. These features are achieved in a number of ways
  • Medical Device Link .
    Using Implantable-Grade PEEK for In Vivo Devices PEEK, which has significant benefits in vivo, may be what OEMs want for implant devices. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer is an exceptionally strong engineering thermoplastic that retains its mechanical properties even at very high temperatures
  • Designed To Beat The Heat
    such as polyetheretherketone (PEEK), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), polyethersulfone (PES), and even 4/6 and 6/6 nylons. High temperature and even seemingly benign chemicals can many times cause or contribute to failure of these and other thermoplastic materials. This is especially true
  • Medical Device Link .
    . New developments in carbon-fiber-reinforced (CFR) polymer composite materials have made the material an attractive alternative to the metallic materials traditionally used in implant development. CFR polyetheretherketone (PEEK) composites offer design freedom not readily achievable with other
