KetaSpire® KT-880 CF40 is a 40% chopped carbon fiber-reinforced polyetheretherketone (PEEK.) The carbon fiber content in the formulation is designed to provide maximum strength and stiffness properties in a filled PEEK compound. The resin enjoys all the key performance attributes for which PEEK is known including resistance to harsh chemical environments, high heat resistance (both short and long term), along with excellent fatigue resistance. This resin is a high flowing/low viscosity grade and is ideally suited for use in injection molding fabrication. It can be melt processed using standard thermoplastic melt processing equipment. Potential application areas for KT-880 CF40 include uses in the aerospace industry and some other transportation applications where maximum mechanical properties are desired while maintaining a low specific gravity. Semiconductor fabrication is another industrial area of possible use for this resin as are the chemical processing, oil and gas, and health care industries.
