Material Data Sheet

Material: Ketron® PEEK 1000 Machining

General Purpose

This general purpose grade is unreinforced and offers the highest elongation and toughness of a PEEK grades. The Newly available black PEEK 1000 is ideal for instrument components where aesthetic are important, as well as for seal components where ductility and inertness are important.
