Kepstan® PEKK for filament extrusion
Kepstan® PEKK (PolyEtherKetoneKetone) is the latest addition to the PAEK (Poly-Aryl-Ether-Ketone) family, and is ideally suited for metal replacement thanks to its very high service temperature, chemical resistance, and excellent fire retardancy.
Kynar® PVDF for filament extrusion
Kynar® PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) resins are extremely resistant to harsh chemicals and UV radiation. They are known to be among the most durable polymers in the world. This tough semi-crystalline fluoropolymer, formulated for printability, benefits from outstanding Z-direction strength and ductility. Filaments made from Kynar® resins are particularly suited for early-stage prototyping or short-run manufacturing. Kynar® fluoropolymers are specified for printing chemical processing equipment, fluid transport parts, outdoor exposed elements, or jigs & fixtures.
Material of choice for the chemical industry

Pebax® elastomers for filament extrusion
Pebax® TPA (elastomers) are an incredibly versatile range of materials. They are extremely lightweight, flexible, fatigue resistant, impact resistant, and exhibit unmatched energy return compared to alternative materials like TPU.
Excellent processing characteristics
Low energy loss factor across wide temperature range
Very good layer adhesion and elongation at break
High impact resistance, especially at low temperature
Partially bio-based grades available
