Material Performance 

FDM Antero™ 800NA gives new opportunities for chemical resistant 3D printed parts. A majority of thermoplastics tend to fail when they come in contact with fuel, hydraulic fluids, or other chemicals. However, FDM Antero™ 800NA, a PEKK proprietary blend, solves these challenges with excellent mechanical properties and the highest chemical resistance available.
