Antero 800NA

A PEKK-based material

Antero™ 800NA is a PEKK-based FDM® thermoplastic. It combines FDM’s design freedom and ease of use with the excellent strength, toughness and wear-resistant properties of PEKK material.

Antero 800NA exhibits high heat resistance, chemical resistance, low outgassing and dimensional stability, particularly in large parts. Antero 800NA is available on Fortus 450mc™ and Stratasys F900™ 3D Printers and is compatible with SUP8000B breakaway support material.

The information presented are typical values intended for reference and comparison purposes only. They should not be used for design specifications or quality control purposes. All values after “±” are standard deviations. End-use material performance can be impacted (+/-) by, but not limited to, part design, end-use conditions, test conditions, etc. Actual values will vary with build conditions. Tested parts were built on Fortus 450mc @ 0.010” (0.254 mm) slice. Fluids tested include Skydrol 500B-4, MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), Toluene, Dichloromethane (DCM), Ethyl Acetate, and Jet-A aviation fuel. Product specifications are subject to change without notice. Ten samples were built on three different machines, resulting in 30 samples total used in each mechanical test in both the XZ and ZX orientations.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology

Advantages of 3D printing Antero 800NA with a Stratasys FDM Machine

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology. Antero 800NA parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

FDM systems are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce. Advanced FDM 3D Printers boast the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, delivering longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing systems, delivering high throughput, duty cycles and utilization rates.

Gain new possibilities

FDM 3D Printers streamline processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way. Industries can cut lead times and costs, products turn out better and get to market faster.
