Directa Plus, producers and suppliers of graphene-based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, has recently declared the launch of GRAFYLON® 3D, a graphene-enhanced filament for 3D printing. The new product has been developed in collaboration with FILOALFA, a division of Ciceri de Mondel that specialises in producing filaments used in 3D printing, and is now commercially available. This is the first 3D printing product to contain the Company’s Graphene Plus.
GRAFYLON® 3D is a new generation of polylactic acid-based (PLA) filament containing the Company’s graphene-based product. In 3D printing, hundreds or thousands of layers of material are “printed” layer upon layer using various materials, most commonly plastic polymers such as PLA filaments. The inclusion of Graphene Plus enhances the filament’s properties, whilst maintaining a competitive price.
GiulioCesareo, CEO of Directa Plus, said: “We are delighted to launch GRAFYLON® 3D, in collaboration with FILOALFA, which is our first product in the 3D printing market. Our new filaments provide advantages over non-graphene-based filaments that open up new areas of application for 3D printing based on the incredible properties, such as conductivity and material strength. We believe they can revolutionise industry standards in the 3D printing field.”
