Launch of PEEK filament for industrial 3D applications
Evonik (Essen / Germany; www.evonik.com) has developed a 3D-printable filament based on polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK) that is particularly suitable for the additive manufacturing of lightweight as well as high-performance 3D parts for the aerospace, automotive, and oil and gas industries.

The material, bearing the brand name “Infinam” (PEEK 9359 F), is resistant to high temperature and chemicals. The natural-coloured filament has a diameter of 1.75 mm and can be wound on 500 g spools suitable for direct use in standard FFF/FDM 3D printers for PEEK materials.

Compared to stainless steel, 3D parts made of the new material are approximately 80% lighter and 30% tougher, with excellent fatigue resistance. They also boast of wear resistance and low sliding friction, making them ideal for manufacturing lightweight structural parts. The 3D components printed from Infinam can withstand long-lasting temperature effects of 25°C or short-lasting temperature effects of over 300°C.
