RAPID 2021: PEKK shares most of the performance attributes of PEEK, but has a lower crystallization rate and is less affected by the cooling process once the part is 3D printed, thereby minimizing warping.

Essentium’s PEKK, made with an Arkema 6002 Kepstan resin, is an ultra-polymer offering high heat and chemical resistance as well as mechanical strength to meet the performance requirements of aerospace and industrial applications.

The company says PEKK shares most of the performance attributes of PEEK, but has a lower crystallization rate and can therefore be treated as an amorphous polymer.
