SABIC has unveiled a new portfolio of six high-performance filament grades for fused deposition modeling. The new filaments, designed for use with Stratasys Fortus printers, are based on the company’s Ultem polyetherimide (PEI) resin, Cycolac acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resin and Lexan polycarbonate (PC) resin and offer the same composition as the company’s injection moulding grades.
Manufacturers can use the filaments to produce a range of high-performance durable end-use parts, the company reports. The filament is meant for applications that require high heat resistance, high strength, and low flame, smoke and toxicity.
The nominal diameter of all SABIC’s filament products is 1.79 millimeter ± 0.05 millimeter and they are available in a 1510 cubic centimeter spool size.
Materials manufacturer, SABIC, headquartered in Saudi Arabia, offers expertise and resources to support testing, design and development of new additive manufacturing technologies.
