Carbon fiber-reinforced polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a corrosion-resistant thermoplastic material that is as strong as steel. The material is reinforced with carbon fiber to allow for increased strength properties at elevated temperatures. With a tensile strength of 300,000 psi and operating temperatures of 525F, the carbon fiber-reinforced PEEK prevents galling and seizure.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
