PEEK O-ring seals - Minnesota Rubber and Plastics

Feb. 1, 2011
Custom seal design can incorporate elastomers.

Seals made of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) handle thermal expansion, have a long operating life, resist aqueous and organic chemicals, and retain mechanical properties up to 570°F. Optional custom molded-in joints can incorporate elastomer seals to minimize leaks or facilitate required fluid “pass through.”
