Evonik Presents 3D Printable PEEK Care Filament


EEvonik has developed a new 3D-printable PEEK biomaterial for medical technology. With VESTAKEEP® Care M40 3DF, the specialty chemicals company is launching a polyether ether ketone filament for medical applications with body contact up to 30 days.


The high-performance polymer can be processed in common extrusion-based 3D printing technologies such as fused filament fabrication (FFF) or fused deposition modeling (FDM). With the product launch, Evonik is expanding the possibilities for individual treatment of patients using additive manufacturing.


The new PEEK filament is the latest addition to Evonik’s “Care Grade” line based on the high-performance polymer VESTAKEEP® Care M40. The product impresses with its biocompatibility, excellent temperature and chemical resistance, very good sterilizability, and easy handling. The range of possible applications extends from patient-specific hearing aids to filigree prostheses and orthoses to surgical drilling aids for dentistry or individual surgical instruments. For further information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printed Materials Market 2020-2030: COVID Edition . With a diameter of 1.75 mm, VESTAKEEP® Care M40 3DF is supplied in natural color on 500-gram spools that can be used directly in standard FFF/FDM 3D printers for PEEK materials. The filament is manufactured under cleanroom conditions and […]
