On this edition of 30 on 3D, learn about Antero 800NA, the first PEKK-based material available on a Stratasys FDM system. Using Antero 800NA with FDM technology avoids the waste and design limitations associated with using subtractive manufacturing on a PEKK material.
Behavior & Use
93 MPa (XZ Axis)
46 MPA (ZX Axis)
3,095 MPA (XZ Axis)
34,834 MPA (ZX Axis)
37 J/m (XZ Axis)
27 J/m (ZX Axis)
The material works particularly well in industries such as:
Oil & Gas – Create custom fixtures and electrical connectors
Aerospace – Develop parts that require chemical and temperature resistance, like:
- Clips, brackets, and clamps
- High requirements tooling
- UAV – high temperatures near engine or chemical resistance required
Space – Make ground support equipment and pieces used during assembly, test, and flight operations, as Antero 800NA works well with high-temperature stability and low outgassing.
Industrial Manufacturing – Create parts used for chemical exposure, like:
- Custom and specialty tooling
- Clean room compatible tooling
- Jigs and fixtures
