ThermaX™ PEEK 3D Filament [RED]

ThermaX™ PEEK (PolyEtherEtherKetone) is one of the highest-performance polymers in world.  PEEK has exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties making it a go-to material in some of the most demanding applications.  The Polyaryletherketone (PAEK) family of thermoplastics exhibit exceptional thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties.  The PAEK family includes the following polymers:

  • Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)
  • Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK)
  • Polyetherketone (PEK)
  • Polyetherketoneetherketoneketone (PEKEKK)  

Product Attributes Include:

  • Glass Transition Temp (Tg) of 143°C 
  • Melt Temp (Tm) of 343°C 
  • Inherent flame resistance (UL94 V-0)
  • Outstanding mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance
  • Continuous Use Temperature (CUT) of 260°C, higher for short duration
  • Excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals, such as those used in the oil/gas, automotive, aerospace, industrial, and chemical processing industries
