AvaSpire® PAEK (polyaryletherketone) is a family of high-performance polyketones tailored to fill cost and performance gaps between PEEK and other high-performance polymers. For example, ductility and toughness can be significantly improved versus comparable grades of PEEK, delivering 20% higher tensile elongation at yield and doubled tensile elongation at break values.

Depending on the grade, AvaSpire® PAEK outperforms comparable grades of PEEK.

  • Higher stiffness from 150 °C to 190 °C (302 °F to 374 °F)
  • Improved ductility and toughness
  • Equal or better chemical resistance
  • UL-94 V0 rating at 0.8 mm
  • Comparable strength and stiffness at up to 30% lower cost
  • Excellent aesthetics and colorability

Choose the Performance You Need

AvaSpire® PAEK is available in:

  • Neat grades (lubricated, non-lubricated)
  • Glass fiber and carbon fiber reinforced grades (structural grades)
  • Wear resistant SL grades (lubricated, non-lubricated, load bearing)

Glass fiber and carbon fiber reinforced KetaSpire® PEEK grades deliver the greater mechanical robustness required for structural applications.
