Guidelines for Machining PEEK, PAI and Other Advanced Polymers

Posted On November 18, 2016


Machining and finishing of high temperature polymer materials can release residual stress. It is recommended that a second annealing is performed on the semi-finished stock prior to the machining process. Annealing can limit dimensional changes, remove stress, and increase levels of crystallininty.
