WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF HEATED CHAMBER?

ULTIMATE STRENGTH AND QUALITY
WITH 250°C HEATED CHAMBER

 The optimum temperature for the heated chamber is Glass transition temperature (Tg) of the used polymer. The heated chamber is the most important feature when looking for the best result.
Optimum chamber temperatures for some high-performance polymers:
  • PPSU – 225°C ULTEM 1010 – 220°C 
  • ULTEM 9085 – 185°C 
  • PEKK-A – 160°C
