High-performance materials

3D printing the world’s most advanced polymers provide access to end-use, high-strength, and high-heat AM applications but they also come with some essential considerations to be successful. For example, did you know that simply printing high-performance materials does not guarantee your final part will possess the same strength and chemical resistive properties of the polymer?

High-performance materials, like PEEK, PEKK, and ULTEM™, offer final part properties that can exceed many metals. The ability to 3D print these materials comes with its own set of challenges and hardware requirements.

What you’ll learn

  • Exciting applications from companies leading the additive manufacturing charge with parts made with PEEK, PEKK, and ULTEM™.
  • What sets these three ultra-high-performance polymers apart from other filaments.
  • Challenges with printing with advanced thermoplastics, and how to overcome them.
  • How to choose an industrial 3D printer that offers the features you will need.
