Antero 800NA material was chosen for this aircraft fuel system connector due to its fuel resistance and light weight.
The benefits of PEKK, the design freedom of FDM
Antero 800NA PEKK-based thermoplastic combines FDM's design freedom and ease of use with the excellent mechanical properties and low outgassing characteristics of PEKK material.
High-performance PEKK-based material
Antero 800NA PEKK-based thermoplastic possesses excellent mechanical properties that include high strength, high heat resistance, toughness and wear-resistance. These superior qualities make it a lighter alternative to aluminum and steel. Chemical resistance and minimal outgassing provide suitability for aerospace applications.
