PEEK is becoming increasingly sought after in the additive manufacturing industry for its excellent mechanical properties as well as chemical and temperature resistance. 3D Printlife’s filament is manufactured in a clean room at its medical-grade extrusion facility outside of Boston, MA. The production process is also closely supervised by 3D Printlife experts so that the resulting filament boasts a dimensional accuracy superior to +/- 0.03 mm.

The PEEK filament will become available to buy on May 21, 2019 via 3D Printlife’s online store. The company says it will offer custom weights of the material starting at 100 g for introductory testing. At RAPID, 3D Printlife will also be offering free PEEK samples to attendees.
