High Temperature Plastics

Across a broad range of industries and applications, ETEC’s high temperature plastics feature best-in-class strength and durability.

So whether you’re looking to print injection molds and wind tunnel models, or mass-produce aerospace connectors, electronic housings, ducts, or underhood components – ETEC has you and your applications covered!

E-Perform

Strong and stiff material with high heat tolerance

E-Perform is a high stiffness and high heat tolerance material ideal for producing 3D printed injection molds. Printed E-Perform molds are capable of resisting wear from highly abrasive materials, such as fiber filled plastics. It is also ideal for end use parts that require steady performance in high pressure and harsh environments, such as parts for wind tunnel testing.
