PEEK Increasingly Popular
Polymer bushings have found widespread acceptance because they are typically low friction, light weight, relatively inexpensive, have an extended service life, and can be self-lubricating. Most polymer bearings and bushings are made from a form of PEEK, PTFE, Nylon, or UHMW PE. PEEK is becoming increasingly popular because it offers a good balance of chemical, heat, and wear resistance; and is, versatile when it comes to manufacturing.
