High performance drive components

Wire Belt introduces our line of PEEK drive components. PEEK is an abbreviation for PolyEtherEther-Ketone, a high performance engineering thermoplastic that can operate at high temperatures and is less abrasive on your stainless steel belts than metal drive components. PEEK can be used continuously to 464°F (240°C) and in hot water or steam without permanent loss in physical properties. Our PEEK line is available for all drive components including: gears, blanks and end rollers.
