Arkema showcases at TCT Asia 2019 its latest collaborative innovations in 3D printing technologies
The ‘3D Printing Solutions by Arkema’ platform continues to develop its world leading portfolio of advanced materials solutions for additive manufacturing while demonstrating its network of innovative partnerships throughout the entire 3D ecosystem.
Arkema will showcase its collaborative partnership with Autodesk and Farsoon for high performance Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) manufacturing. The state-of-the-art manufacturing software of Autodesk, coupled with the advanced hardware manufactured by Farsoon takes full advantage of the superior strength and durability of Arkema’s Rilsan® polyamide 11 powders.
Arkema’s Sartomer business unit will promote several pioneering solutions that have also been co-developed in partnership with its downstream customers. For high performance dental applications, new liquid resin grades are being highlighted for low irritation and low odor, while other new innovative grades are specifically designed for shoe soles with improved resilience and toughness.
For the specific needs of the jewelry market in Asia, we are introducing our lastest N3xtDimension® casting resins which offer excellent melt and demonstrate very low residual levels after the casting process.
Arkema is a world leading provider of high performance polymer materials for 3D printing. Most famous are its flagship families – bio-based Rilsan® polyamide 11 polymers that offer improved strength compared with traditional polyamide 12, Kepstan® PEKK polymers that offer truly ultra-high strength and heat resistance, and the Sartomer N3xtDimension® series of UV curable solutions custom-designed for tailored performance.
