Polyether ether ketone (also known as PEEK) is a popular thermoplastic polymer used in a broad range of industries, including medical, automotive, chemical, and energy industries. The technology has been around for a while, but only in the last few years has it started to be used more frequently in medical procedures. In this blog post, we’ll learn about five essential tips for machining PEEK plastics.
What is Medical-Grade PEEK Material?
The medical-grade PEEK possesses all of the mechanical properties of industrial-grade PEEK. However, in addition to all of these properties, medical-grade PEEK plastics are also chemical resistant and biocompatibleㅡwhich means they don’t have harmful effects on the human body. This makes them especially useful in custom medical implants, such as articulating joints.
