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
Bring cost saving versus subtractive technologies
Continuous use temperature up to 130°C
Excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals
Non-hygroscopic: no drying of filament or special storage needed
Inherently UV-resistant for exterior applications
Very good abrasion resistance
Low smoke and flame characteristics
Long-term hydrolytic stability
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
- Low density
- Very good layer adhesion and elongation at break
- High impact resistance, especially at low temperature
- Partially bio-based grades available
