PEKK (polyether-ketone-ketone) resins are made from a tailored combination of two monomers (terephthaloyl and isophthaloyl moieties on the left and right, respectively). Its key features include:

  • Outstanding high temperature performance - continuous use temperature 250 – 260°C, short term exposure up to 300°C
  • Very high stiffness, tensile & compressive strength, impact resistance
  • Excellent combustion resistance properties - inherently flame retardant, low level of smoke generation
  • Low smoke toxicity
  • Resistant to virtually all organic and inorganic chemicals (only sensitive to very agressive reagents like fuming sulfuric and nitric acid, methylene chloride)
  • High dielectric strength - good insulating properties
  • High breakdown voltage
  • Tremendous barrier properties (CO2, H2S...etc.)
  • Outstanding control of wear-rate and COF (coefficient of friction)
  • This material data has been provided by M-Base.

    All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
    Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
