filamentive-polymers-engineering Filamentive has launched Filamentive PRO – a specialized portfolio of high-performance 3D printing polymers for engineering applications.

With hardware innovation enabling desktop FFF / FDM 3D printers to be capable of printing high temperature materials, high-performance polymers such as PEEK, PEKK, PPSU and ULTEM can now be utilized by engineers to create custom, high-value parts for critical applications.

Superb Strength-to-Weight Ratio

Offering strength-to-weight ratios that surpass most metals, this next generation of high-performance polymers have the capability to disrupt the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and medical industries.

As per the 2021 Sculpteo State of 3D Printing Report, 49% of Power Users (3D printing in a work context with significant experience using the technology) say they use it for production. Furthermore, the industry has to meet the needs of end-use applications with new materials with 72% of users naming strength as the most important material property.

With 3D printing increasingly utilized as a real production tool, Filamentive PRO seeks to meet the growing demand for high performance polymers used in industrial applications, whilst still upholding our central sustainability agenda,” says Ravi Toor – Founder & Managing Director, Filamentive.

Filamentive PRO is made possible due to collaborative partnerships with Mitsubishi Chemical and LEHVOSS; the initial material portfolio will consist of:

Sustainable Material with Improved Performance

Sustainability remains a strong focus of Filamentive PRO. To reduce environmental impact, all materials sold will be spooled onto 100% recyclable cardboard reels, reducing waste and eliminating hard-to-recycling plastic reels. Furthermore, said polymers are inherently more hard-wearing and resistant than conventional 3D printing filaments such as PLA, enabling long-term, end-use applications – extending product life cycles and thus reducing the associated material input, energy use and wastage. Carbon offset is another sustainability initiative – Filamentive’s partnership with Ecologi ensures carbon emissions arising from production, transport and employee activity are now offset.
