Flame retardant filament?

Hi guys, does anyone know if there is a filament that falls under the norm EHK 118?

I am looking into prototyping certain parts in car industry, but they have to be compliant with EHK 118.

I know that some polycarbonates are flame resistant.  Not sure about the common PC and PC Blend filaments.

Suggestion

I will second that - I would suggest that you find a flame-proof or resistant filament and email the manufacturer.

PEEK might answer your needs but you'd need to modify the extruder to handle the high temperatures...

Cheerio,

PEEK might do it, but it is not easy to print and will take significant modification (as you said).
