PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) is a heat-resistant 3D printing filament and is rightly called high-performance plastic. This semi-crystalline plastic is characterized by its special resistance as well as possessing the highest temperature resistance of all thermoplastics. Its mechanical properties, dimensional stability for instance, remain intact even with continuous use at high temperatures of 200 degrees. Also impressive is its chemical resistance to almost all solvents, many acids and alkalies. In addition, polyphenylene sulfides are highly impermeable to liquids and gases and are known for their low water absorption and creep behavior. Due to its high dielectric strength, the PPS filament is ideally suited as an insulator. The impressive properties of PPS allow for a very versatile application in 3D printing. Especially in the electronics and vehicle sector, PPS and additive manufacturing are used to produce molded parts that must be able to withstand the highest mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical stresses.
