NBK, an advanced component manufacturer, recently added a new fastener to its product offering: the hex-socket, plastic head-cap screws.
The hex-socket, head-cap screws are made of PEEK GF30, containing glass fiber for increased strength. The tensile strength of the material is about 1.7 times that of conventional PEEK material.
PEEK is a thermoplastic super-engineering plastic, offering superior physical and chemical properties. This includes excellent chemical, heat, and water-resistance. It also provides a high flame-retardant feature that fully clears the UL 94 V-0 standard.
Additionally, PEED GF30 remains nearly unaffected by chemicals other than concentrated sulfuric acid, concentrated nitric acid, and concentrated hydrofluoric acid., it retains strength at high temperatures.
