Trinseo, the International Materials Solution Provider and Manufacturer of plastics, synthetic rubber, and latex binders, stated today that its Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) business unit has partnered with Advanc3D Materials, a materials supplier for additive manufacturing, to manufacture filament made of Trinseo resins.
Trinseo products that are currently available in filament form from Advanc3D Materials are:
EMERGE™ 7700 Advanced Resins
MAGNUM™ 3453 ABS Resins
MAGNUM™ 8391 MED ABS Resins
MAGNUM™ 3904 ABS Resins
These specialty resin grades have the elastomeric properties required for additive manufacturing as well as include – depending on the grades -- FDA food contact compliance, biocompatibility testing, ignition resistance and glossy and matte finishes.
Trinseo resins are presently used by customers in the CEM industries of medical, electrical, lighting and consumer electronics sectors.
Both CEM and Advanc3D Materials have been interested in providing filament under brands that are known and trusted. 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.
