Kimya PEKK Carbon Filament
Improved printability compared to ordinary PEEK or PEI, with very high resilience.
Ideally suited as a replacement for metallic applications
The PEKK material from the French manufacturer Kimya is one of the strongest and most resilient plastics on the entire market. The material available here is additionally reinforced with carbon fibers, which creates even greater rigidity and strength. PEKK (polyetherketoneketone) is a high-performance polymer that is one of the most demanding materials in the current state of research.
- Flame retardant (UL94 V0)
- Good chemical resistance
- Heat resistant up to 260°C
Kimya PEKK Carbon is typically used by the automotive and aerospace industries because it can often produce components with metallic properties that are significantly lighter or easier to manufacture. However, the many advantages in terms of technical properties are only possible because PEKK is processed at high temperatures. A standard desktop 3D printer cannot process this material. The material requires a print nozzle temperature of 380°C, a print bed temperature of 150°C and a closed and heated installation space of 80°C.
Features of Kimya PEKK Carbon Filament
Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) offers various advantageous properties. For example, the material is heat-resistant up to 260°C and at the same time flame retardant certified according to UL94 V0. For this reason, the material is also often used, for example, to produce air ducts in trains, airplanes or cars. In addition to the high mechanical capabilities of the printing material, it also offers a very appealing surface quality, as is common with carbon fiber reinforced filaments.
Chemical resistance of Kimya PEKK Carbon Filament
Kimya PEKK Carbon has an extremely high chemical resistance. Materials that do not attack PEKK or have little to no absorption include acids, alcohols, alkyds, ketones, bases, esters, ethers, halogens and hydrocarbons. However, nitric acid, sulfuric acid and methylene chloride are not recommended.
