GEHR PEEK®

Material to meet highest demands

Our semi-finished products, such as round rods, sheets and hollow bars, made of GEHR PEEK® stand out for their low-stress property, their straightness and homogeneity. Over the last few months, we succeeded in significantly reducing the core filament of the semi-finished products. This will be of particular benefit to operators producing optical components in terms of design.

Beyond that, GEHR PEEK® possesses excellent dimensional stability in chip removal machining processes. Thanks to the properties detailed above, these semi-finished products are extremely well-suited for manufacturing high-precision parts. Obviously, the material also features the familiar characteristics, such as high resistance to temperature, high heat deflection temperature, good hydrolytic and radiation stability and it is voidfree. Conflict minerals as detailed in the CMRT (Conflict Minerals Reporting Template), often also referred to as Dodd-Frank-Act minerals, are not, to our knowledge, added in our production process or by our raw material suppliers. Compliance to RoHS maximum permitted concentrations has been confirmed.

Material approvals:

•       Drinking water BS 6920

•       Food contact 1935/2004/EC and 10/2011/EC

•       FDA 177.2415

•       Medical technology: ISO 10993-5 and USP Class VI (on request)

•       NORSOK M-710 Rev. 2, M-630 MDSP21 Rev. 3

•       MIL-P-46183

Semi-finished product approvals:

•      Food contact 1935/2004/EC and 10/2011/EC

•      Medical technology: ISO 10993-5 and USP Class VI (on request)

The following dimensions are available in stock: Round rods: diameter:

5 – 200 mm / 0,2 – 8” Sheets: thickness: 5 – 120 mm / 0,2 – 4,7” Hollow bars: various sizes and dimensions

We have expanded our extruded plastic semi-finished products portfolio with the addition of UHMWPE in sizes ¾” - 8” (Color-Natural) GEHR UHMWPE has a high abrasion resistance (very good glide characteristics) and a high toughness at the same time. The chemical and crack resistance are optimum in comparison to the standard PE-HD. The operating temperature of UHMWPE ranges from -238 F to +194 F. The product is stocked in 10’ lengths from ¾” – 4” and 5’ lengths from 4 ¼” – 8”.

Round Rods and Sheets now available

We have expanded our stocking program and now have the following dimensions available in stock: Round rods: diameter: 6 – 150 mm / 0,2 – 6” (color: natural and black) Sheets: thickness: 10 – 50 mm / 0,4 – 2,0” (color: natural) The material is produced in metric sizes.

Plastic filaments for professional 3D printing

We have expanded our extruded plastic semi-finished products portfolio. As of now we offer plastic filaments for professional 3D printing under the brand name FIL-A-GEHR.  The filaments are produced in Mannheim from high-quality raw materials and with close tolerances. As of now we have available in stock the following materials: FIL-A-GEHR ABS FIL-A-GEHR PLA FIL-A-GEHR PC/ABS FIL-A-GEHR PPA FIL-A-GEHR PA12 FIL-A-GEHR PEEK They are available in diameters of 1.75 mm / 0,05” and 2.85 mm / 0,11” – both in 1 kg / ~2,2 lbs coils or 2.3 kg / ~5,1 lbs coils – and in many different colors.

GEHR sets new standards in acetal extrusion again! We would like to formally announce the addition of 24“ diameter, natural 
Acetal rods to our stocking program. Standard length will be 39“ (1 meter) 
But if needed we can cut to custom length where required.

WORLD PREMIERE: GEHR CPVC Round Rod 8" INCH

As of now we can deliver from stock GEHR CPVC Round Rods with a diameter of 7" and 8" INCH and a length of 2,000 mm. Thus, this semi-finished product can be used for applications which had not been possible before. GEHR CPVC is heat-resistant up to 85 °C and has an exceptional chemical resistance.

We have done it !

With immediate effect you can get from us: 
GEHR Acetal sheets in thickness of 120 mm
We are extruding the sheets in a width of 620 mm and in a length of 1000 mm; the sheets are immediately available.

Clearly the new king of anti-corrosion materials

Now available in rod stock of 40mm, 80mm and 100mm.

Sheet available from thicknesses of 10mm to 100mm.

GEHR POM-C® sheets in thickness of 10"

With immediate effect you can get from us GEHR POM-C sheets in thickness of 10". We are extruding the sheets in a width of 24". The sheets are already available from stock.
Once more we can offer to the market new dimensions, which did not exist before.

 

A world first for the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries

Available as of now from GEHR: antistatic Acetal with food-grade approval.

Though semi-finished products made of Acetal with an antistatic finish were available in the past, they did not have food-grade approvals. There was no demand for this in the electronics and semiconductor sectors. For the pharmaceutical industry, however, and the food and beverage industries as well, where static charges are a problem and at the same time food-grade approvals are essential, our new material enables us to offer an optimum solution at last. (FG = Food-Grade)
