Engineered to be Tough
PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is an engineering thermoplastic known for its versatility, mechanical strength, and resistance to harsh chemicals. If you need a tough, rigid material for components where thermal, chemical, and combustion properties are critical, Arlon® PEEK is for you. This material retains its stiffness and strength under high pressure and extreme temperatures and is often used as the body for electrical connectors and sealing solutions across a wide range of industries.
Reduce Wear and Tear
Avalon® fluoropolymersare built for speed. If your application requires nonabrasive contact surfaces, high-temperature contact, low deformation under load, and strong chemical resistance at high surface speeds, this is the material for you. The base material provides unparalleled lubricity and can be customized with additives for enhanced resistance to wear and elements.
