Perstorp AB and 3D4Makers sign a Joint Venture agreement to form ElogioAM, a 3D Printing materials company

PerstorpPerstorp AB, global leading specialty chemicals company, and 3D4Makers, a high performance 3D printing filament producer, are joining forces with a new Joint Venture: ElogioAM, to bring new material solutions in order to advance the additive manufacturing industry. By combining the deep insights of both companies into chemicals and polymers, ElogioAM is bringing the world’s first fifth-generation 3D filament, Facilan™, which enables applications previously unobtainable with other 3D printing materials.

SABIC again expands fast-growing additive manufacturing materials portfolio with launch of three new filaments at NPE 2018

SABIC has extensive experience in a range of healthcare market segments, including single-use devices, portable medical equipment and surgical instruments and trays. The company’s new ULTEM™ AMHU1010F and LEXAN™ AMHC620F filaments are potentially suitable for a wide variety of medical devices, from conceptual modeling to functional prototyping and end-use parts. Customized or personalized applications can include surgical instruments, single-use devices and casts/splints.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, announced here at NPE 2018, booth S19001, the third expansion of its additive manufacturing materials offering within 12 months. Specifically, SABIC is launching three new filaments for fused deposition modeling: ULTEM™ AM1010F filament for general high-temperature applications, including tooling; and ULTEM™ AMHU1010F and LEXAN™ AMHC620F filaments for healthcare applications. These advanced new materials, which can be used for end-use parts as well as prototypes, are key to SABIC’s strategy of extending the scope of additive manufacturing. The company is also applying its broad expertise in materials, processing and design optimization – as well as deep knowledge and experience in healthcare – to enhance additive manufacturing technologies.
