SABIC, a chemical industry company, is reaffirming, through a multi-faceted exhibition at Formnext 2018, its determination to further the evolution of additive manufacturing technology and promote application innovation. By leveraging its unique, high-performance resin technologies and process capabilities to develop differentiated material solutions for various additive manufacturing processes, SABIC is creating significant value for customers and the industry as a whole.
SABIC is featuring its newest filaments for fused deposition modeling, including a tough filament made from its high impact EXL resin. Addressing industry needs for greater choice, SABIC is also demonstrating the use of its filaments in open architecture printers from a range of equipment manufacturers. Another focus area at the show is large format additive manufacturing (LFAM): SABIC is highlighting various tooling applications, as well as parts printed from its LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ AM portfolio of specialty compounds. The company is also highlighting recent breakthroughs in the use of its amorphous resins with standard selective laser sintering (SLS) equipment to provide a range of sinterable materials that extends beyond currently available semi-crystalline powders.
Differentiated resin capabilities, a broad portfolio and deep expertise empower SABIC to offer material solutions such as high heat ULTEM™ resins, specialty copolymers and reinforced compounds to customers throughout the additive manufacturing value chain. Additionally, SABIC is able to provide materials in printable form when this brings value to the industry.
