- Excellent strength, and stiffness up to 500°F (260°C)
- Low coefficient of friction and high wear resistance
- Chemically resistant to common chemicals including acids, salts, solvents, oils and steam
- Low out gassing, low particle generation and inherent purity
- Unique physical, thermal & electrical properties
- PEEK hex head bolt features and benefits
Polyetheretherketone, Victrex® or PEEK hex head bolts offer a unique combination of properties for some of the most extreme applications. PEEK / Victrex bolts are known for their excellent wear resistance, best in class fatigue resistance, high purity and excellent chemical resistance to organics, acids and bases.
Depending on the application, PEEK hex head bolts can be reinforced with glass fibers for improved strength and stiffness properties. Reinforced PEEK bolts offer greater mechanical robustness especially in applications beyond 350°F (175°C).
PEEK bolts are well suited for applications in chemical processing, electronics, transportation, healthcare and other industrial uses.
Bolts made from customer specified PEEK grades are available upon request. See our online store (right side) for common PEEK bolts or contact us for specialty or quantity requests.
Bolt Types Available: Hex Bolts
It is important to differentiate between a PEEK hex head bolt and hex head cap screw. Often people assume they are the same, but they are actually very different fasteners in terms of how they are manufactured, as well as from an application perspective. Regardless of your choice, PEEK hex heads offer strong, stable joints because of their large head service.

Common PEEK Bolt Grades
PEEK 100% / Unfilled
PEEK, with no fillers is unreinforced and 100% polymer. Even without glass or carbon fiber reinforcement, this one of the strongest polymers we offer and well suited for a variety of applications including FDA food contact and other applications requireing high purity.
PEEK Glass Fiber Reinforced
PEEK 30% Glass Fiber Reinforced provide the same chemical resistance and natural PEEK but nearly doubles in tensile strength.
PEEK Carbon Fiber Reinforced
PEEK 20% Carbon Fiber Reinforced provides approximately 2.5 times the strength of pure PEEK.
PEEK Extreme is our proprietary receipe for the highest strength PEEK utilizing carbon fiber reinforcement. This version of PEEK over 3 times stronger than standard unreinforced PEEK.
· Hex boltshave a flat end and lack the washer face under thehead.
· Appropriate for when mechanical properties are more important than dimensional tolerances.
