Performance, tested under fire. For parts that can withstand punishing heat and exposure to chemicals, PPSF/PPSU high-performance thermoplastics coupled with FDM technology provides heat-resistance, strong sterilizable parts.

PPSF/PPSU (polyphenylsulfone) material has the greatest heat and chemical resistance of all CIDEAS materials making it ideal for aerospace, automotive and medical applications.

PPSF parts are not only mechanically superior, but also dimensionally accurate, to better predict end-product performance. Users can also sterilize PPSF via steam autoclave, EtO sterilization, plasma sterilization, chemical sterilization and radiation*.

PPSF gives you the ability to manufacture real parts direct from digital files that are ideal for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use-parts.

Due to the rigid break-away support structures, PPSF is not suitable for complex assemblies.
