Medical components custom molded of PEEK from Minnesota Rubber and Plastics (MR&P) improve performance while reducing costs. The company has proven experience molding PEEK designs that dramatically increase product performance and provide a superior alternative to metal and glass components.
PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is a high performance thermoplastic. Utilizing MR&P’s proprietary processes and designs, PEEK can be used as an alternative material to provide long operating life with chemical resistance. PEEK has excellent retention of mechanical properties in high heat applications up to 570°F (300°C). PEEK components also are highly resistant to thermal degradation as well as attack by both organic and aqueous environments.
