Materials We Need
We welcome the opportunity to develop new, long-lasting relationships with manufacturing companies that are generating scrap of the materials we need.
Please review the information below, and contact us for further details if you have any of these items.
PEEK Machining Shavings
We need shavings scrap of the following types :
- Unfilled natural PEEK shavings
- Glass-fiber reinforced natural PEEK shavings
- Dry-cut preferred. Water-based cutting fluid residue is OK, but shavings should not be dripping wet.
- Both lathe-cut and mill-cut types are needed.
- Occasional trash or bits of non-PEEK shavings contamination are OK.
- Packed in clear bags, with each bag having only one type of material.
- If shavings will require LTL shipping for delivery to PolyClean, bags should be baled in a clean baling machine.
