According to market research firm Markets and Markets, the 3D printing materials industry will be worth $1.4 billion by 2021. In many ways, additive manufacturing (AM) is coming into its own in the industrial space and the key to unlocking its potential are the materials that it uses.
When it comes to mechanical properties, performance under high temperatures, and chemical resistance, there’s one family of polymers that rules them all: polyetherketone. One company in particular, Oxford Performance Materials (OPM), has built itself up on a foundation of polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) with its own PEKK material, dubbed OXPEKK.
