Antero™ 800NA is a PEKK-based FDM thermoplastic with excellent mechanical properties that include high strength, high heat resistance, toughness and wear-resistance. These superior qualities make it a lighter alternative to aluminum and steel in certain use cases. Chemical resistance and minimal outgassing provide suitability for aerospace applications where prototypes and parts are exposed to jet fuel, oil and hydraulic fluid. Other uses include industrial applications where high-strength and chemical resistance are needed. 3D printing with Antero 800NA FDM filament avoids the waste associated with subtractive manufacturing of high-cost bulk PEKK material.
