PK 5000 Additive Powder

Jabil’s next generation SLS powder surpasses the limitations of existing SLS powders and creates a polymer renowned for its strength, toughness and flexibility.

PK 5000 Powder features a unique combination of chemical and mechanical properties, such as high-impact strength, high-abrasion resistance and improved elongation to withstand functional testing and use. Equally important, PK 5000 has high-barrier properties and low-moisture absorption, which are critical for ensuring the quality and resilience of parts and products exposed to fuel, water, harsh chemicals and rugged environments.

Our engineered powder, which is based on PolyKetone, is an eco-friendly and non-toxic polymer made from carbon monoxide sequestered from manufacturing emissions assisting you in corporate sustainability initiatives. The ability to leverage carbon monoxide, which is a leading cause of atmospheric pollution, reduces its overall carbon footprint.
