Production-Grade FDM Thermoplastic
PPSU (also known as PPSF) offers elevated properties compared with commodity plastics. It is stronger than polycarbonate but its more notable features include heat and chemical resistance. This makes it a good choice for demanding applications exposed to oils, gas, and acids. It is also ideal for aerospace, automotive, medical applications, as well as prototypes exposed to extreme conditions.
Mechanically superior material, greatest strength
PPSF/PPSU (polyphenylsulfone) material has the greatest heat and chemical resistance of all Fortus® materials. PPSF parts manufactured on Fortus 3D Printers are not only mechanically superior, but also dimensionally accurate, to better predict end-product performance. Users can also sterilize PPSF via steam autoclave, EtO sterilization, plasma sterilization, chemical sterilization, and radiation. PPSF gives you the ability to manufacture parts direct from digital files that are ideal for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and production parts.
