Poly Ether Ether Ketone - PEEK PVE Ultimate
04
SHP

PEEK PVE Ultimate (peek mod) is a self-lubricating plastic which is ideal for sliding applications and bearings.

The engineering plastic combines 80% Peek, 10% PTFE and 10% carbon to create a self-lubricating plastic with additives that enhance wear. Due to better tribological properties, PEEK PVE will perform at higher speed and pressure than other PEEK grades. The plastic is an excellent material for applications involving movement or wear. It offers high creep resistance, good heat deflection and excellent dimensional stability.

Consider PEEK PVE Ultimate as a viable alternative to alloy steels for applications including bearing cages.


Material Benefits

PEEK PVE offers excellent performance characteristics, which include:

  • Good heat deflection temperature
  • Good sliding and wear performance
  • High creep resistance
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Wear enhanced additives, increased PV (pressure velocity) capability

Motorsport Applications

Applications for PEEL PVE in motorsport include:

  • Bearing cages to reducer drag torque
  • Bearing cages for rolling bearings
  • High-speed train cages
  • Powertrain applications and stabiliser bushes
  • Valve components
  • Electrical components
  • Chassis components
