Kimya PEBA filament, Polyether block amide, is produced via polycondensation of a carboxylic acid polyamide with an alcohol-terminated polyether.
PEBA, based on PEBAX by Arkema, is very flexible: it has the best elongation % in the range (>550%). It can be used to make shoe soles or other sports equipment (cycling, golf, American football helmet) as it offers substantial energy return. The Kimya PEBA 3D filament has the following properties:
- Flexibility (>550% tensile elongation at break)
- Impact resistance
- Complies with the RoHS and REACH standards
Both 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter filaments are available.
Ultimaker Marketplace profiles are available for the Ultimaker S5. The profile has been optimized to work with the Air Manager and Material Station. This material is compatible with both PVA and Breakaway support materials.
