TECAFIL PEEK VX natural is an unfilled PEEK filament based on Victrex® PEEK 450 resin. PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is a high-performance plastic with exceptionally high thermal, mechanical and chemical resistances. Due to its excellent balance of physical properties, PEEK plastic is used in demanding applications such as aerospace, automotive, medical, semiconductor and oil and gas. Parts printed from PEEK filaments can operate at temperatures up to 260°C while retaining their excellent chemical resistance and mechanical properties. Since PEEK 3D printing filament has excellent dimensional stability, it is often used where high-precision parts are required. In the recent past, many metal applications have been replaced by PEEK plastic. In the field of additive manufacturing, 3D printer PEEK filament is also a good alternative to metal, especially when it comes to maintaining high mechanical properties and chemical resistance. Looking at prototyping or low volume production, it is often easier to 3D print PEEK filament instead of processing metal or plastic.
Due to the frequent use of Victrex PEEK in industrial applications, it is often found in material specifications for components as in "Victrex PEEK 450" or similar descriptions. The 3D printing process allows a fast and easy production of parts and thus the exchange in applications, but this must be done according to the specifications. In these cases, the PEEK filament TECAFIL PEEK VX natural is the ideal solution and an alternative to TECAFIL PEEK EV natural.
This PEEK filament is a food safe filament, declaring conformity to regulations (EC) No 1935/2004, (EU) No 10/2011 and (EC) No 2023/2006 including a FDA statement of conformity on raw materials. Declaration is available on request.
