Hi,

A customer is asking me about a nitric acid filament... Do you have something to suggest ?

Copolyester like Ultimaker CPE are indicated as chemical resistant but no more informations about it.

Any of you has tried this out ?

Thanks (:

    I don't think there is such a thing as a truly resistant filament if you are talking about concentrated nitric acid.

    If you are "just" talking about lower concentrations (<10% or so), then CPE or Polycarbonate should probably work...

    Well I didn't have more informations about his project, I gave him all technical and security datasheets and I let him check by himself. Then I'll try to give him a sample but I agree, it sounds difficult to find such a resistant filament
