PEEK – A – Boo

Having an almost 4 year old and an 18 month old at home means I spend at least 15 minutes every evening playing some form of Peek-A-Boo.  Last night it was my oldest holding a blanket in front of her while her younger sister sat on the floor and watched.   Then she would drop the blanket on the ground and yell PEEKABOO!  I’m sure we all know this as the normal version of the game.   However, my oldest also easily confuses Peek-A-Boo with hide and seek as well as just flat out scaring people.  (Which is hilarious until it happens to you.)

Here at EXAIR we use a different form of  PEEK.   In fact, we just released another Super Air Nozzle in PEEK plastic.   The model 1104-PEEK Super Air Nozzle.   This nozzle will tout the same performance as the Zinc/Aluminum and Stainless Steel models but will be better suited for certain applications.   Why might someone use a PEEK nozzle instead of a metal one?

The brief list below is just a few of the advantages.

  • Non Marring
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Hydrolysis resistance
  • Weight Reduction
  • Temperature resistance
  • UV Stability
  • Non-conductive

So if you have an application where you need something a little different than metal, don’t forget we offer many of our Super Air Nozzles in PEEK plastic.
