Healthcare applicationsRilsan® Polyamide 11 is the material of choice for medical device applications such as orthotics and prosthetics that require open customization. Thanks to the material's flexibility, 3D-printed devices for orthotics provide a high level of comfort to patients. Also, 3D printed devices with Rilsan® Polyamide 11 are resistant to impact, and chemicals related to sweating and are easy to clean. Therefore our customers choose 100% bio-based Rilsan® Polyamide 11 for application as ankle-foot orthosis, orthopedic insoles and cranial orthosis.

KIMYA PEKK-A filament, made from Arkema's Kepstan® PEKK, is a PAEK family material with exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties. Kepstan® PEKK is optimized for easier 3D printing and better interlayer adhesion. In this timelapse, a Kepstan® PEKK fluid mixer was printed on the AON M2 with a section cut out to see the inner workings.
Founded in 2015 by a team of materials engineers, AON3D is a Montreal-based additive manufacturing hardware, software, and material science company. AON3D’s large high-temperature AON M2+ industrial 3D printer with Arkema Kepstan® PEKK enables engineers and designers to easily create complex parts with superior mechanical and thermal properties.

LynxterLynxter, a French company founded in 2016, designs and builds industry 4.0 additive manufacturing machine tools. The R&D team from Lynxter worked on improving the mass of a cast aluminum intake manifold. In order to optimize the weight of this engine assembly, the teams had to rethink its design and composition and make the choice to print it in PEKK. In its amorphous form (PEKK-A), Kepstan® PEKK delivered the level of mechanical and temperature resistance required for this application.
