Material Focus: Antero840CN03

The ideal material for highly customised tooling

Find out more about this high performance FDM material

Stratasys recently launched the new Antero 840CN03 on the Fortus 450mc joining the Fortus 900. This FDM thermoplastic combines high-performance PEKK-based characteristics with consistent electrostatic-dissipative (ESD) properties. Antero 840CN03 debuted on the F900 printer and now on the Fortus 450mc giving operators the option to benefit from this high-performance material.

It has a variety of excellent attributes including:

  • Strong mechanical properties
  • Electro-static dissipation
  • High-temperature resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Exceptional wear properties
  • Ultra-low outgassing characteristics
  • Flame, smoke, and toxicity (FST) retardance

These qualities make Antero 840CN03 an ideal material for highly customized tooling and low-volume production parts needed to withstand extreme conditions, like the hatch covers on Lockheed Martin’s Orion spacecraft (see image below):

This materials primary advantages over other Stratasys high-performance materials – such as ULTEM 9085 resin, ULTEM 1010 resin, and PPSF – are its ESD, high chemical resistance, and superior mechanical performance.
