Download Our White Paper: "Bonding Liquid Silicone Rubber to Durable PEEK Will Launch a New Generation of Medical Devices"
PEEK (Polyether ether ketone) has traditionally been used in engineering applications to mold gears, bearings and other wear parts normally made of metal, especially for the aerospace and automotive industries where weight is an important consideration. But because of its unique combination of strength and biocompatibility, it has also been used in biomedical applications such as medical implants, spinal fusion devices and reinforcing rods that demand those qualities. In recent years, it has also been increasingly used in molding a wide variety of medical devices. As the number of devices molded with PEEK has increased, molders and device manufacturers alike have recognized the value that the ability to bond LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) elements to PEEK would bring. The resulting devices would share the benefits of these two remarkable materials, creating a new generation of medical devices that are both more durable and more user-friendly.
