Abstract

This study analyzes the bulk material properties of a PEEK/BN composite and provides a comparison to the commercial PEEK resins including unfilled, carbon fiber filled, and glass fiber filled materials. It was found that the BN filled PEEK had a similar storage modulus, measuring lower than the carbon fiber filled and higher than the glass fiber filled materials, at temperatures both above and below the glass transition temperature. The thermal conductivity of the BN filled PEEK was higher than all of the commercial grades when measured in the in-plane direction. The BN composites also possessed a similar toughness of the commercial grades, but the weld point of the BN filled matrix was more fragile than the commercial systems.
