PEEK Bearings - Radial, Deep Groove, Miniature

Radial PEEK Bearings

Radial PEEK Bearings

The purpose of a PEEK ceramic hybrid radial bearing is to withstand high temperatures and corrosion, reduce rotational friction and support loads. PEEK is a semicrystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained at high temperatures. The Young's modulus is 3.6 GPa and its tensile strength 90 to 100 MPa. PEEK has a glass transition temperature at around 143 °C (289 °F) and melts around 343 °C (662 °F). The thermal conductivity increases nearly linearly versus temperature between room temperature and solidus temperature. It is highly resistant to thermal degradation as well as attack by both organic and aqueous environments. It is attacked by halogens and strong Bronsted and Lewis acids as well as some halogenated compounds and aliphatic hydrocarbons at high temperatures. It dissolves completely in concentrated sulfuric acid at room temperature. The Boca Bearing Company specializes in miniature, deep groove, PEEK Bearings.

  • Zirconia Oxide (ZrO2) Series

    PEEK is a semicrystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperatures. Ceramic balls are made from inorganic, nonmetallic materials that are processed at high temperatures. Many ceramic balls are capable of achieving an extremely smooth surface finish to a high degree of tolerance. As a result Ceramic Balls have an extremely low coefficient of friction as compared to Metal Balls.
