PEEK custom parts and PEEK fasteners such as screws, hex heads, hex nuts, set screws, flat washers and threaded studs are used in a wide range of industries.These include semiconductor manufacturing equipment, oil and gas, telecommunications, medical equipment and medical parts for implantation in the human body. It is also used widely in the semiconductor equipment manufacturing industry, and the electronics and food processing industries. PEEK stands for polyetheretherketone.
Properties of Polyetheretherketone
Excellent chemical resistance
Excellent insulating properties (dielectric properties/nonconducting)
94 V-0 flammability rating
Excellent hydrolysis resistance.…
TORLON®, Polyamide-imide (PAI)
TORLON® is the Solvay brand name for polyamide-imide or PAI. It can be machined into custom parts, screws and other fasteners including hex nuts. set screws, hex head cap screws and threaded studs. Polyamide-imides demonstrate exceptional mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties making them well suited to severe environmental service.
High Heat Performance
Torlon®, polyamide-imide have exceptionally high heat performance with a continuous service temperature of 260°C or 500°F and are inherently flame resistant.…
Plastic vented screws are often used in vacuum systems. They either have a hole drilled through their axis or along the side of the screw. This hole allows the evacuation of trapped pockets of air and surface contaminates from blind-tapped holes. A bind-tapped hole is one that is drilled to a specified depth without breaking through the other side of the work piece.
Vacuum Systems in HV, and UHV
Vented screws allow for faster and more efficient pump-down of High Vacuum (HV),…
