High performance Polymers
Replacing metal and other polymers to address increasing performance requirements
High-performance polymers are located at the top of the polymer pyramid and represent about 700,000 tonnes or only 0.2% of all man-made polymers. They are typically much more difficult to produce , however, as the difficulty of producing the polymer increases, so does the performance of the resultant polymer.
PolyEtherEtherKetone (PEEK) belongs to these high-performance polymers and is a member of the PAEK (Poly Aryl Ether Ketones) family of polymers, a family with over 300 members but only a handful of which have been commercialised.
