PEEK-CF is one of the most durable polymers for technical use, offering top chemical, tensile, and heat resistance. This filament was created for industrial professionals who need uncompromised quality of end-use parts, to deal with demanding surroundings.
What is CF-PEEK? KETASPIRE® PEEK-CF is a semi-crystalline, thermoplastic filament from the high-performance polymers range.
A combination of PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) and CF (carbon fiber) results in extraordinary resistance, thus PEEK-CF is suitable to replace metal parts in some critical applications working in extreme surroundings. Carbon fiber 10% addiction to PEEK gives the 3D printing filament extra strength, high stiffness, and dimensional stability.
In comparison to PEEK filament, PEEK-CF provides even more flexural and impact resistance. It is ductile too. Printing with PEEK-CF is odorless, and it does not emit smoke and toxic gases. Last but not least, the product has low flammability.
Key benefits of PEEK-CF
· High mechanical properties – the polymer might replace metal parts in severe environments.
· Superb chemical, flexural, and tensile resistance makes it one of the most durable polymers available on the market.
· Great heat resistance: items printed with PEEK-CF are able to perform up to 240 °C.
Industrial applications of PEEK-CF
Because of its extraordinary mechanical properties, many industrial companies find PEEK-CF very useful for printing end-use parts, which are capable to face severe conditions. To give you some examples, the automotive, aerospace, defense, semiconductor, medical, and oil & gas sectors are the main beneficiaries of 3D printing with PEEK-CF.
This polymer is suitable for printing dynamically-stressed parts, seals, compressor components, bushings, gears, and bearings.
PEEK-CF filament: good to know
At present, black is the only color available. 3DGence is the first company to implement the ESM-10, soluble support material to be printed with PEEK-CF. Using the soluble material makes post-processing easier, quicker, and more cost-effective. It can be used with a breakaway support material as well.
The printing profile is available in 3DGence SLICER 4.0. PEEK-CF filament is compatible with our 3D printers: INDUSTRY F340, INDUSTRY F350 and INDUSTRY F421.
How much is CF-PEEK filament? Due to its extra durability and top properties, KetaSpire® CF10 LS1 AM Filament is one of the most expensive filaments on the market.
