MATERIALS

FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE

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.

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.

Your Application - Our Materials

Our materials portfolio is designed for high-performance industrial applications. 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 PEEK, 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. That means it has resistance to heat up to 149°C, is almost universally resistant to chemicals and solvents and is unaffected by long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

Apium POM-C ESD White

POM-C is a copolymer showing high strength and modulus that make it particularly resistant to impact and fatigue. Due to its lighter weight, it is often used as a replacement for metals.
