Cryogenic deflashing for PEEK plastic removes mold flash from parts made of polyetheretherketone (PEEK), an engineering thermoplastic that provides chemical resistance, mechanical strength, and dimensional stability.
Nitrofreeze® cryogenic deflashing removes flash from glass-filled PEEK coupling rings. This fast, efficient and consistent finishing process uses gaseous nitrogen to freeze the parts and plastic media to break-off surface imperfections and excess material. Because it’s a batch process, cryogenic deflashing eliminates manual deflashing such as hand trimming for faster throughputs and reduced labor costs. […]
Nitrofreeze® Cryogenic Deflashing provides OEM manufacturers, job shops, and molding houses with reliable and efficient way for them to deflash Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) molded parts. Cryogenic deflashing utilizes polycarbonate blast media and part tumbling in a cryogenic atmosphere to remove residual flash material. Below is a deflashing study of a molded PEEK part: Material : […]
Nitrofreeze® Deflashing and Deburring process adds value while reducing costs to customers by eliminating the need for hand trimming. Highlighted below is an actual customer part that has successfully undergone the Nitrofreeze® process. Material : Glass-filled PEEK Description : Black Coupling Ring Area for Concern : ID Threads and Ejector Pin flash Results : The parts were […]
