PI Filament, Zymergen Z2 is printable polyimide. This material has critical advantages for printing parts that require high tensile strength and higher yield. In addition, PI filament opens the possibility to print high-performance parts in a wider variety of printers. This material can also lead to higher reliability processes for manufacturing parts. Additionally, parts also do not need to be annealed after printing to perform well. Polyimide is a very high-strength polymer that is inherently flame retardant, has excellent insulating properties and excellent thermal stability. The PI filament meets the EN 45545, R22 and R23 in HL3 and thus is suitable for railway vehicles applications.
- Easy printability means high yield during printing (e.g., high output) with fewer reject parts.
- High mechanical strength (including Z strength) for performance in every direction
- Low warpage helps with bed adhesion and improves reliability
- Bio-inspired monomers for tunable performance and sustainability

To get the best results while printing we advise you to keep the 3D printer in a room where there is hardly any draft and/or temperature fluctuations. When the 3D printer is not being used it is important to keep filament in a bag and stored in a cool, dry and dark place until it is used again.
