MATERIALS FOR 3D PRINTING

APIUM HIGH-PERFORMANCE MATERIALS

Apium enables the highest part quality in the additive production of high-performance polymers.

High part quality starts with the material. Apium filaments are the best choice for industrial and medical applications.

Top Overall Material Quality

The cooperation with the industry leader Ensinger and our aspiration for highest quality guarantees the purity and compliance with high dimensional tolerances of our filaments and high performance materials.

Compatibility & Quality Management

Our focus and the development of own high-performance materials guarantee that our 3D printers are developed in the meaning of our materials. This ensures compatibility and highest quality of printed components.

Open Material Selection

In order to support the idea of research and development, you have the opportunity to process third party filaments using Apium P Series. Our experts will be happy to advise you and find the right material for your individual requirements.

Apium PEEK 450 Natural / Black / Blue

PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic which is ideally suited for applications with thermal, chemical and mechanical exceptional conditions. It allows users to reduce overall weight, extend life time and thanks to the Material Extrusion it increases design freedom.

Apium CFR PEEK Black

The combination of Carbon Fibers and PEEK provides Apium CFR PEEK enhanced thermal properties. Its improved thermal conductivity properties allow end-users to use this material especially in systems where thermal management plays a critical role, such as heat dissipation in microprocessors and other electronic systems.

Apium PEI 9085 (ULTEM) Natural

PEI 9085 (Polyetherimide) is an unfilled engineering plastic with high strength and broad chemical resistance. It shows similar properties to Polyetheretherketone, but it is relatively cheaper with low impact strength and lower thermal resistance. This material is especially attractive for applications in the aircraft industry due to its excellent flame retardancy.

Apium PVDF 1000 White

PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride) is a homopolymer with medium viscosity. Similar to other high-performance polymers it offers stability in the form of thermal, chemical or ultraviolet conditions. This material is thermally resistant/structurally stable up till 149°C and it is almost universally resistant to chemicals and solvents, showing no signs of effect by long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene (PP) is a linear hydrocarbon thermoplastic polymer, created from the polymerization of propylene monomers. Its melting range extends from 130°C to 171°C. In terms of industrial production, PP is the next most widely used commodity polymer following polyethylene.
