TECAPEEK IM GF30 natural

injection moulded PEEK with 30% glass fibre

Injection moulded stock shapes of a Victrex PEEK polymer, and 30% glass fibre are available under the tradename TECAPEEK IM GF30 natural. This modification provides increased strength and rigidity. The outer diameter of tubes made from this glass fibre reinforced PEEK vary between 31,75 mm to 177,8 mm, the inner diameter varies from 12,7 to 152,4 mm. Lengths of 76,2 and 152,4 mm are the standard.
