RS Pro Plastic Solid Plastic PEEK Sheets


From RS Pro a range of high-quality PEEK polymer solid plastic sheets available in a range of sizes and thicknesses.


What are Solid Plastic Sheets?


Solid plastic sheets are sheets of strong durable plastic or plastic like materials which are cut to size and sold in a wide range of sizes and thickness. Solid plastic sheets can then be cut or machined into components for the fabrication of products that are uses in a wide range of industries. Different plastics have different properties which lend them for use in specific applications


What is PEEK Plastic?


PEEK polymer (Polyetheretherketone) is a high performing semi-crystalline thermoplastic with a unique combination of properties, it is tough, rigid and maintains high strength and stiffness in the most demanding of conditions. This solid plastic sheet has many qualities which can help to reduce down time and component failure


Features and Benefits of PEEK Plastic Solid Sheet


• Resistance to harsh chemicals including wide range of acids and bases
• High performance in hydrocarbons (natural gas and fuels) and organic solvents
• Resistant to hydrolysis (chemical breakdown in water) with a low water absorption and permeability
• High creep resistance (creep is the tendency of a solid material to move slowly or deform permanently under the influence of mechanical stresses
• Resistant to steam, water and sea water
• High mechanical and tensile strength
• High stress cracking resistance
• Excellent wear and abrasion resistance
• High temperature performance, can also operate at temperatures up to 260°C
• Excellent slide and wear properties
• Good resistance against high energy radiation
• Good electrical insulation properties
• Low emissions in vacuum applications
• Sterilisable making it suitable for use in the food and medical industry
• Good machinability


What Industries is PEEK Plastic Solid Sheet used in?


PEEK plastic sheet due its strength and durability is suitable for the manufacture of items that are used in demanding applications in a wide range of industries. This solid plastic sheet has become an essential tool for materials engineers in applications when no other material can meet their demanding requirements. This plastic has also replaced glass, stainless steel and titanium in a growing range of medical applications. Industries that use this plastic sheet include;


• Oil and gas industry
• Alternative energy production, solar and wind
• Mechanical and automotive engineering
• Packaging and paper processing machinery
• Electronic and electrical engineering
• Nuclear and vacuum technology
• Food processing and medical industries
• Chemical industries
• Aircraft and aerospace industry


What Products is PEEK Plastic Solid Sheet used in?


Due to its many attributes PEEK plastic can be used in the fabrication of components that are subject to a high level of wear and tear. Engineers sometimes use this plastic as a substitute for metal. Components that can be manufactured from this plastic include the following:


• Friction bearings
• Piston Parts
• Pump housings and metering pumps
• Bushes
• Compressor plate valves
• Cable Insulation
• Light mountings
• Ball valve seals
• Wafer supports
• Plug parts
