TAGS:   3D Printing    

New Generation of Solutions for 3D Printing Arkema is promoting its high performance materials for 3D Printing at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) 2019 Conference in Chicago, IL -US, from March 31 to April 4, 2019. During technical sessions, experts are presenting how materials contribute to unlock new industrial applications.

Next Revolution of Industrial Opportunities


Guillaume de Crevoisier, Global Business Director, 3D Printing Solutions, Arkema
"Arkema is focused on unlocking the next revolution of industrial opportunities by bringing full solutions and expertise to end users. AMUG has always been a great venue for us to discuss new production applications and forge new partnerships. "

The AMUG Agenda features Arkema during two sessions on April 3rd, 2019 - “Top Material Companies Driving Innovation in the 3D Printing Market” and “Material Specific Solutions for Transportation, Sports, and Dental Applications”.

Join us at AMUG to learn more about the following:

Powder Bed Fusion:


  • Arkema is displaying parts and highlight “real world” production part case studies from its powder bed fusion partners.
  • Rilsan® Polyamide 11 powders are the only high performance materials available from a completely bio-based origin and they offer some of the strongest mechanical properties of all polyamide powders.
  • For the most demanding applications, parts made with Kepstan® PEKK powders offer robust mechanical performance, extreme high temperature tolerance, high purity, gamma stability, and extremely high chemical resistance.
  • There will be several parts printed by Hexcel using their formulation based on Kepstan® PEKK.

Photocure:


  • Arkema’s Sartomer division is introducing eight new products from its N3xtDimension® line of UV-curable engineered liquid resins.
  • New launches include N3D-I200 for impact resistance, N3D-F2110 for flexibility, N3D-P2120 for high quality prototyping, N3D-C1700 for casting applications, and other unique resins for advanced performance.
  • Sartomer’s N3xtDimension® resins offer customized properties and freedom of design. They are compatible with the main printing technologies – SLA, DLP, MJP and BJ.

Extrusion Printing:


  • Arkema’s partner, 3DXTech, launches a filament made from Pebax® “3DXFlex™ TPE” is the first commercially available Pebax® TPE based filament developed for extrusion printing.
  • This lightweight elastomer is world renowned in sports markets for its outstanding energy return. Printed parts exhibit excellent layer to layer adhesion resulting in exceptionally strong parts.
  • Also on display is 3DX Tech’s FluorX™ filament made from Arkema’s Kynar® PVDF.
  • FluorX™ filaments are made from a patented formulation launched in 2018 that now has a print profile available on Ultimaker’s Cura marketplace.

Kepstan® PEKK


  • Kepstan® PEKK is quickly becoming the preferred ultra-high performance polymer for extrusion printing systems.
  • As mentioned previously, this material offers an excellent combination of processability, strength, chemical resistance, low flammability, and high temperature properties.
  • Filaments made from Kepstan® PEKK are available from several partners globally.

Developments Supported by Investments


Arkema has just recently expanded its capacity for Kepstan® PEKK materials with a new plant at its site near Mobile (AL – US). This new facility ensures a consistent supply to serve the growing needs of markets requiring materials that perform under extreme conditions, such as aerospace, oil and gas, consumer electronics, automotive, and additive manufacturing. Arkema is also expanding capacity for N3xtDimension® resins at its Nansha plant in China, and Orgasol® Polyamide12 powder in Mont, France, to come on stream in 2019.

3D Printing Solutions by Arkema is unlocking the next revolution in manufacturing.
