PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone)

PEEK (polyether ether ketone) is a colorless organic thermoplastic polymer which has excellent mechanical and chemical resistant properties, making it an excellent choice for aesthetic orthodontics as it is highly durable and will not stain from food or drinks due to its exceptional water resistance. It is most commonly used in medical devices (eg spinal fusion) as well as aerospace and automotive industries.
