AON-M2 Supported Materials.

The AON-M2 supports the strongest 3D printable plastics available, including high-strength, chemically resistant, and flexible varieties. See our most popular options below.

PEEK

PEEK

PEEK (polyether ether ketone) is currently the strongest 3D printable thermoplastic in the world and possesses an extremely high maximum operating temperature of 250ºC, allowing it to be used as a direct substitute for metals in many situations, or where significant chemical resistance is required.

Properties:

  • high temperature range
  • chemically resistant
  • high strength

Variants:

  • unfilled
  • 20% carbon fibre
Ultem™

Ultem™

Ultem™ 9085 (polyetherimide or PEI) is a high-performance amorphous thermoplastic with excellent mechanical properties, high heat and chemical resistance. In 3D printing materials, it is only surpassed mechanically by PEEK, but is significantly more affordable.

Properties:

  • high temperature range
  • chemically resistant
  • high strength
  • FST certified

Variants:

  • unfilled
  • 20% carbon fibre
  • ESD safe
ABS

ABS

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a high-performing, economical plastic for use at temperatures between -20C and 80C. ABS is ideal for functional prototyping, jigs, fixtures, and other environments that are exposed to moderate physical stresses.

Properties:

  • easy to print
  • inexpensive
  • impact resistant

Variants:

  • unfilled
  • 20% carbon fibre
  • ESD safe
Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is an amorphous thermoplastic that displays high impact and flexural strength, and can be used at temperatures of up to 116ºC. It is one of the most commonly used thermoplastics in industry, and is excels when moderate heat and physical stresses are present.

Properties:

  • moderate temperature range
  • high strength
  • impact resistant

Variants:

  • unfilled
  • 20% carbon fibre
  • ESD safe
Nylon

Nylon

Nylon is one of the most popular production-grade thermoplastics, coming in a wide variety of forms dependent on desired material properties. In general, Nylons possess strong chemical and temperature resistance, and perform better in almost all mechanical categories when compared to ABS. AON3D carries a wide selection of Nylons depending on application. Contact us to learn more.

Properties:

  • abrasion resistance
  • shatter resistance

Variants:

  • unfilled
  • 20% carbon fibre
Uretheane

TPU

TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) is a flexible, tough, abrasion resistant material used for situations where high elasticity is desired. Example applications include shoe insoles, flexible tubing, dampeners, and enclosures.

Properties

  • flexible
  • elastic

Variants

  • urethane
  • thermoplastic co-polyester
Support Material

Support Materials

AON3D carries and supports a wide variety of support materials, including HIPS, PVA, and more depending on the intended material application.

Properties:

  • soluble (PVA)

Variants:

  • PVA
  • HIPS
