Kimya PEBA-S Filament
Flexible 3D printing material with excellent mechanical properties and easy processing.
PEBA (Polyether Block Amide) is a thermoplastic high-performance elastomer that can replace various elastomers such as polyurethane, polyester elastomers or silicone. The raw material on which the Kimya PEBA-S filament is based comes from the French chemical company Arkema and is also known under the brand name PEBAX.
- High elongation at break
- Very soft, flexible material
- Easy to print
Advantages of Kimya PEBA-S Filament
The filament has a shore hardness of 93A. Despite this value, it is subjectively one of the softest materials on the market. Kimya PEBA-S has many similar properties to a silicone (e.g. slip resistance), which clearly distinguishes it from other flexible materials such as TPU. In addition, the printing material has a high elongation at break and is very light. PEBA-S can also be easily printed with Bowden-style extruders. However, the printing speed should be reduced and the fans deactivated if necessary.
Applications for Kimya PEBA-S Filament
PEBA is often used for the shoes or soles of athletes. In addition, the material is used for all damping or spring applications, such as shock absorbers . Due to the high resistance of the material to extreme weather (low temperatures, UV light and moisture), PEBA is also used for ski boots . In the field of medicine, the material is used to make catheters and prostheses .
