The EOS P 800 is a high-temperature system for laser sintering high-performance polymers. The polyaryl ether ketone polymer, PEEK HP3, has a tensile strength of up to 95 MPa and a Young's modulus of up to 4400 MPa, values up to 100% above those attained by PA 12 and PA 11 materials. Depending on the field of application, the continuous operating temperature is between 180ºC and 260ºC. This enables application-specific properties, such as flame retardancy, biocompatibility, and sterilizability. Due to suitability for process temperaures of up to 385ºC, the system can make use of this material group for laser sintering technology.
