New KETRON PEEK-GF30 blue to meet the increasing requirements

Quadrant EPP : 08 June, 2006  (New Product)
Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (former Erta and Polypenco) has developed a new KETRON PEEK-GF30 blue to meet the increasing requirements of the medical industry for repeated sterilisation and more frequent cleaning of medical devices and design flexibility.
Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (former Erta and Polypenco) has developed a new KETRON PEEK-GF30 blue to meet the increasing requirements of the medical industry for repeated sterilisation and more frequent cleaning of medical devices and design flexibility.

Quadrant EPP's KETRON PEEK-GF30 has set a new standard of machined parts performance in a wide variety of high performance end-use applications where a combination of outstanding mechanical and chemical properties at high temperatures is required. Proven commercial applications include instrument handles and grips for sterilisable surgical and dental equipment.

KETRON PEEK-GF30 made by Quadrant EPP exhibits a unique combination of chemical and stress cracking resistance at elevated temperatures and long-term high mechanical strength. It is resistant to all standard sterilisation techniques, high-energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays) and resistant to a wide range of chemicals including aggressive cleaning solutions and disinfectants. The material has higher strength and stiffness, impact and wear resistance compared to previously used thermoset material. KETRON PEEK-GF30 does not degrade even after more than 250 sterilisation cycles, extending service life of medical components. KETRON PEEK-GF30 has very good dimensional stability and inherent suitability for close tolerance machining, leading to high quality, precision parts.

The colouring possibilities of KETRON PEEK-GF30 add design flexibility and aesthetic appeal to medical components. The material's wide colour range provides even greater opportunities for product differentiation.

KETRON PEEK-GF30 is available in a wide range of stock shapes for cost-effective, high quality part design.
