Resistance to high temperatures
Woven into fabric, monofilaments made from VESTAKEEP
PEEK can be used in special conveyor belts for drying or heat-treating products that are continuously conveyed lying on their surface. Familiar applications for PEEK are the production of webs, textiles drying, food processing, and powder transport.
Monofilaments made of PEEK that are woven into multilayers resist high-pressure dewatering of chemical slurries or the consolidation of fiber composite sheets by means of heat. They are used both for air (hot gas) filtration and as a resilient layer or high-temperature cover layer for a conventional felt surface to prevent fire due to friction.
Protection for electric cables
PEEK flexes protect electric cables from abrasion damage, particularly at extreme temperatures, as well as in special areas of automotive and nuclear installations. VESTAKEEP
PEEK monofilaments protect both inner cables and cable bundles against mechanical influences, even at high temperatures.
PEEK bristles show good resilience and functionality in hot or chemically aggressive environments. Unlike other materials, they retain their stiffness especially in the temperature range between 100 and 150°C.
