PPSU Filament

Our PPSU filament is based on the polymer polyphenylene sulfone. PPSU is an amorphous material and has long been used in industry as a high performance plastic. It is widely used in industries such as automotive and aerospace.
Due to its high temperature resistance of up to 220 °C (glass transition temperature), PPSU filament is considered heat resistant.
In addition, it has low moisture absorption, high dimensional stability and excellent hydrolysis resistance, making 3D printed PPSU applications suitable for repeated steam sterilization. Compared to PSU and PES filaments, which also belong to the polysulfone group, PPSU filament has better chemical resistance.
Furthermore, PPSU is also resistant to high energy radiation. This allows a wide range of sterilization processes for applications printed with PPSU.
Good mechanical strength, very high impact resistance and high stiffness complement the properties of the PPSU filament.
