DSM has announced Arnitel® ID2060 HT, its new high-performance Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) for 3D printing using Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). This filament is the first to offer a unique balance of flexibility, chemical resistance against exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) condensate and prolonged high temperature resistance. This balance of properties makes the filament ideally suited for printing demanding automotive air-fuel and industrial applications.

Arnitel® ID2060 HT

Arnitel® ID2060 HT is the first high performance TPC FFF material combining flexibility with prolonged high temperature use, chemical resistance and strength. Parts printed can resist sustained high temperatures of 175° C (1000 hours) or 190°C (500 hours) and chemicals such as EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) condensate.

Metal- & Rubber-replacement

These properties make Arnitel® ID2060 HT suitable for under the hood applications and components for end-of-arm tooling, such as air-fuel management systems, engine shields and covers for automotive. It allows manufacturers to replace aluminum and rubber for light weighting applications under the hood.

Hugo da Silva, Vice president of Additive Manufacturing at DSM, said:
"With Arnitel® ID2060 HT, DSM brings another first to the market in the growing FFF segment. With this high performance material, manufacturers can now integrate 3D printing in their production process for end-use parts which must perform in some of the most demanding environments. We are very excited to deliver on the 3D printing industry's promise of moving additive manufacturing from the prototyping and design environment to the factory floor."
