Carbon Fiber Polyetherketoneketone (CF PEKK)

PEKK and its filled carbon fiber version are classified as experimental materials for advanced users.

While you are free to use any brand and type of material you wish on your AON3D machine, we can only provide support for AON3D-approved materials that we have tested and developed processes for in-house, all of which can be purchased from AON3D directly by contacting

General Process Settings

Setting Value
Extrusion Temperature 330-360ºC
Bed Temperature 120-140ºC
Chamber Temperature 110-120ºC

Usage Notes

Build Surface Preparation

CF PEKK prints best on the AON-M2 High-Temperature Build Plate, but does not generally require the use of a brim or raft. Note that PEI surface of the High-Temperature Build Plate should be periodically resurfaced using a mill, or with an orbital palm sander if no milling services are available. Please contact if you currently have an AON-M2 Aluminum Build Plate and would like to upgrade to the AON-M2 High-Temperature Build Plate.

Filament Drying and Moisture Control

CF PEKK is susceptible to moisture uptake. The filament can be dried in a convection oven at 120ºC overnight (minimum 6-8 hrs), or at 130ºC for 5 hours. Always store unused material in a sealed container with silica desiccant.

For more information, see the Filament Drying and Moisture Control page.

Support Material

There is currently no compatible support material for CF PEKK - prints will require self-support.
