DuPont Performance Materials has announced its participation in the 3D printing industry at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group Conference by showcasing high-performance materials in filament forms of DuPont Hytrel thermoplastic elastomers, DuPont Zytel nylons, and DuPont Surlyn ionomers.
Proven over decades of use, Hytrel, Zytel and Surlyn offer high quality, reliability and performance in various applications in a wide range of industries. The expansion of these high-performance materials into the realm of 3D printing will enable users to achieve the true benefits of 3D printing (greater design freedom, light weighting, reduced product development cycles and much more), allowing for rapid prototyping, part production and mass customisation.
Rahul Kasat, business development leader, DuPont Performance Materials, 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."
