Industrial Grade Engineered Materials

High grade engineered filaments for the professional maker needing high performance.  Products here are produced with engineered thermoplastic resins and compounds.  We can provide products with UV protection, FR ratings, ESD suppression, and EMI Conductivity.  The products in this line are made to order and have some lead time required – typically 1 to 3 weeks.  Pick your material and add your specifications to the order.

3D printer enthusiasts should be mindful of the filament’s higher printing temperatures and possibility of shrinking and warping during cooling.  Most of these materials print at very high temperatures and require printers capable of temperatures in excess of 270°C.  Be sure to print with a heating bed. Applications include automotive parts, parts for material movers, outdoor equipment, and construction uses.  Examples include gears, levers, connectors, shear pins, enclosures, sockets, and shafts.
