ThermaX™ TPI is made using Sabic’s Extem™ Thermoplastic Polyimide (TPI) resin. This resin has been formulated specifically for FFF/FDM additive manufacturing. ThermaX™ TPI boasts exceptional thermal properties with a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 247°C and an HDT of 230°C. This material has exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties and is suitable for the most demanding applications in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, and industrial markets.
What is TPI? One way to think about our ThermaX™ TPI [Thermoplastic Polyimide] is to consider it a higher-heat version of the venerable Ultem™ 1010 PEI (Polyether Imide). Both TPI and PEI are amorphous thermoplastic polyimides and offer excellent high-heat resistance, strength, and chemical resistance. Where ThermaX™ TPI shines is that it offers superior mechanical properties in applications that are exposed to temperatures above 170°C and up to 230°C (up to 50% higher strength than Ultem™ 1010 at these elevated temperatures). ThermaX™ TPI must be considered a top contender when you need the best performance in the most challenging applications.
