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.
