We offer virgin PEEK as extruded bar and tube stock, and also a full range of Dynamic cast PEEK tube in sizes up to 500 mm diameter. AFT also produce an extensive range of compression moulded PEEK rods and tubes in over 15 grades of filled PEEK in sizes up to 600 mm diameter.

Of course this material can be machined to your exact requirements on one of our CNC machines

Key properties of Victrex® PEEK

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Temperature resistance to 260C continuous, with excellent heat distortion properties and resistance to thermal ageing
  • Wear resistance, with low coefficient of friction, and high limiting PV value
  • Low flammability, and low smoke and toxic gas emission
  • Good electrical properties, radiation resistance, and resistance to hydrolysis

Typical applications include but are not limited to:

Introducing PEEK HT

PEEK HT will give all the same performance advantages of standard PEEK, such as chemical and wear resistance, high strength and toughness, with the additional performance advantages of:

  • Up to 3 times the wear resistance of standard PEEK polymer at elevated temperature
  • Physical properties, mechanical and compressive strength are retained for longer at elevated temperature, allowing higher loads at elevated temperature, without deformation of the component
  • Enhanced long term resistance to creep
  • Resistance to chemical attack, solvents, oils and fuels and hydrolysis
  • Low flammability and smoke emission

PEEK HT is also available as a glass filled material

The new Victrex® PEEK ST material has been designed to give all the benefits of Victrex PEEK 450 with the additional that the operating temperature can be taken to over 300°C, improved mechanical performance between 150-200° C is particular enhancement in PEEK ST over the standard PEEK polymer materials. Reinforced materials are available with glass and carbon as a filler, and can be used up to 380°C.

PEEK for the oil and gas industry

In most applications, it is a combination of three or more of these properties that dictates the use of AF800 PEEK™ materials:

  • High temperature, erosion and wear resistance
  • Good electrical properties
  • Very low creep
  • High dynamic fatigue
  • Insensitive to Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD)
  • Excellent hydrolysis resistance
  • Ease of processing and machining
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High mechanical strength
  • A variety of applications

AF800 PEEK™ materials are used in a wide range of oil and gas applications due to the unique combination of properties and range of compounds and unfilled polymers.

  • Logging tools
  • Seals and backup rings
  • Connectors
  • Compressor components
  • Pumps (surface and submersible)
  • Plugs and packers
  • Composites
  • Cables and wireline
  • Tubes and pipes
  • Insulating components
