Components made with the Meldin® 5000 series (PAEK and PEEK-based material formulations) have several advantages over metals, machined ceramics, and other costly machined materials, with the ease and convenience of thermoplastics. Having a high tensile, compressive and flexural strength, Meldin® 5000 materials are injection molded into tight-tolerance finished components in single or complex designs that can exhibit metal-like finishes without expensive machining or secondary operations, and with the advantages of being lighter and corrosion-resistant.
From a tiny bearing used in hand-held surgical tools to large diameter (>1.5m) seal rings used in offshore oil and gas applications, Omniseal Solutions™ offers a Meldin® 5000 grade that will meet your requirements. Meldin® 5301, Meldin® 5302, Meldin® 5320, and Meldin® 5330 grades provide excellent chemical resistance and thermomechanical properties in addition to superior dimensional stability and physical strength. Meldin® 5055 grade combines these excellent properties with inherent lubricity for higher load-bearing applications.
