scope:

This classification system covers poly(ether ether ketone) materials suitable for injection molding and extrusion. This classification system allows for the use of recycled materials provided that all specification requirements are met

The properties included in this standard are those required to identify the compositions covered. Other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications are to be specified by using the suffixes in Section 5

This classification system and subsequent line callout (specification) are intended to provide means of calling out poly(ether ether ketone) materials used in the fabrication of end items or parts. It is not intended for the selection of materials. It is recommended that material selection be made by those having expertise in the plastics field only after careful consideration of the design and the performance required of the part, the environment to which it will be exposed, the fabrication process to be employed, the cost involved, and the inherent properties of the material other than those covered by this specification

Poly(ether ether ketone), commonly referred to as PEEK, is a member of the poly (aryl ether ketone) or PAEK family. Specification D6262 covers properties of PAEK shapes and includes shapes produced from PEEK

NOTE 1-There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard

The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this classification system: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use
