Trinseo (NYSE:TSE), the global materials solution provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced today that its Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) business unit has partnered with Advanc3D Materials, a materials supplier for additive manufacturing, to produce filament made of Trinseo resins.
Trinseo products that are now available in filament form from Advanc3D Materials are:
These specialty resin grades not only have the elastomeric properties required for additive manufacturing but also include – depending on the grades -- biocompatibility testing, FDA food contact compliance, ignition resistance and matte and glossy finishes.
Trinseo resins are currently used by customers in the CEM industries of Medical, Lighting, Electrical and Consumer Electronics sectors.
”Both CEM and Advanc3D Materials have been interested in providing filament under brands that are known and trusted,” said Philippe Belot, business director of Trinseo CEM. “By offering filament through Advan3D Materials, CEM is making it easier for our existing and new customers to access our brands which are trusted by the marketplace and approved for application use. Customers can use 3D printing with the same grades approved for injection molding, thus enabling fast prototyping, production of complex parts, and highly customized small production runs in an effective way.”
For further information or to arrange for filament samples, contact your Trinseo representative or the Trinseo Customer Information Group. Spools of material are available in 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm diameters, to accommodate the two 3D Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) printer options.
