Analysis of Poly(ether ether) ketone (PEEK)

PEEK finds itself increasingly being used in medical device applications due to its strength, biocompatibility, resistance to radiation and degradation, and ease of processing. CPG has been providing testing services on PEEK for our clients for several years, including crystallinity assessment by DSC and FTIR, mechanical properties, surface morphology characterization, and rheological characterization. CPG now offers gel permeation chromatography assessment of molecular weight distribution of PEEK.
