DuPont Performance Materials has launched new materials for the 3D printing industry, at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group Conference, by showcasing high-performance materials in filament forms of its ‘Hytrel’ thermoplastic elastomers, ‘Zytel’ nylons, and ‘Surlyn’ ionomers.
DuPont has developed the Hytrel, Zytel and Surlyn grades to offer high quality, reliability and performance in a wide range of industries. The application of these high-performance materials in 3D printing will help users achieve benefits of 3D printing - greater design freedom, lightweighting and reduced product development cycles, allowing for rapid prototyping, part production and mass customisation.
Rahul Kasat, Performance Materials Development Manager, said: “We are very excited about the addition of these new filament-based products to our existing portfolio and the progress made in the launch of these products for the 3D printing industry. We believe these products will help our customers meet their needs for prototyping and manufacturing using 3D printing as this technology continues to get adopted across multiple industries.”
