3D Printing With Heat-Resistant, Strong Sterilized Parts

Polyphenylsulfone (PPSF/PPSU) has the highest heat and chemical resistance of all FDM printing materials and is suitable for aerospace, automotive, and medical applications.


Use PPSF/PPSU as a high-performance thermoplastic to produce a number of industry-grade applications such as automotive prototypes, sterilizable medical devices, and tooling for demanding applications in-house. With the ability to print mechanically superior parts and its dimensional accuracy, you can better predict end-product performances. Users can also sterilize PPSF via steam autoclave, EtO sterilization, plasma sterilization, chemical sterilization and radiation.
