Evonik has developed a new 3D printable filament based on PEEK (polyether ether ketone). The high-temperature and chemical-resistant ready-to-use material is particularly suitable for the additive manufacturing of demanding industrial plastic parts. The high-performance polymer can be processed in common extrusion-based 3D printing technologies such as fused filament fabrication (FFF) or fused deposition modeling (FDM).

Evonik is launching the new filament under the brand name INFINAM® PEEK 9359 F.

INFINAM® PEEK AS A METAL REPLACEMENT FOR INDUSTRIAL 3D APPLICATIONS
With INFINAM® PEEK 9359 F, Evonik now offers a new filament for industrial 3D applications. The natural-colored PEEK filament, which has a diameter of 1.75 mm, is wound on 500 g spools suitable for direct use in standard FFF/FDM 3D printers for PEEK materials. Thanks to its unique properties, such as high mechanical strength, hydrolysis resistance, or inherent flame retardancy, it is particularly suitable for the production of lightweight and high-performance 3D parts for the aerospace, automotive, and oil & gas industries.
Compared to stainless steel, 3D parts made of INFINAM® PEEK 9359 F are approximately 80 percent lighter and 30 percent tougher with excellent fatigue resistance. This combination of properties makes Evonik's new filament the preferred high-performance material as a metal replacement in demanding lightweight applications. INFINAM® PEEK 9359 F also boasts outstanding wear resistance and low sliding friction, making it ideal for manufacturing lightweight structural parts.
The 3D components printed from INFINAM® PEEK 9359 F can withstand long-lasting temperature effects of 250 ℃ or short-lasting temperature effects of over 300 ℃.
WIDE RANGE OF PEEK-BASED PLASTIC FILAMENTS FOR FFF/FDM
The specialty chemicals company is consistently expanding its range of high-performance filaments based on PEEK for FFF/FDM 3D printing technologies. With VESTAKEEP® PEEK, the group offers an implant grade material for medical technology. INFINAM® PEEK stands for a material grade for use in industrial applications.
Evonik is bundling its 3D printing expertise in its Additive Manufacturing Innovation Growth Field. The strategic focus here is on developing and manufacturing new high-performance materials for key 3D printing technologies. In this context, Evonik has organized its product range of ready-to-use materials under the new INFINAM® brand.
