CPE (co-polyester) materials are chemical resistant, tough and demonstrate good dimensional stability. It is a preferred choice for both functional prototypes and mechanical parts. While both CPE and CPE+ provide similar performance characteristics, CPE+ provides the added benefit of higher temperature resistance and increased impact strength.
Reasons to choose Ultimaker CPE
Product designers use CPE to make extremely tough and dimensionally stable functional prototypes.
Excellent chemical resistance
Excellent toughness and dimensional stability
Good interlayer adhesion, especially when using the front door add-on
Low levels of ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Ideal for short run manufacturing and functional prototypes
Transparent option available
Example 3D prints using CPE
Product design with CPE
The UItimaker’s family of CPE filaments provides users with an array of options, depending on their performance needs.
