PR-43 (30% Carbon-fiber Reinforced PEEK)
Compression-molded 30%, carbon-fiber filled PEEK polymer. Reinforced for maximum improvement (versus glass) in tensile, flexural, and compressive strengths. Flexural modulus is as high as seven times the base resin. As an excellent metal replacement, typical uses are: compressor and pump mechanical devices such as casings, rotors, vanes, valve plates, and high- precision gears with low expansion rates. Other applications include high compression packings and valve seats for critical services such as deep oil wells, petrochemical production, and nuclear plants.
