chemical resistant filament?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · chemical resistant filament?

so my cousin wants a print done for his work. the part will be in contact with agricultural sprays like pesticides as well as solvents and brake cleaners made of heptane and alcohol. anyone know what materials would be good to make the part out of for something like that?

I think it would be a good idea to print it in CPE once, it is PET based. PET is mostly solvent resistant. But before actually using a part, first let it soak in every one of those chemicals to see how it behaves.
