DuPont Transportation & Advanced Polymers, a global business unit of the DowDuPont Specialty Products Division presents new 3D printing filaments, reinforced with glass- and carbon. 

DuPont™ Zytel® specialty nylons have used the ultralow shrinkage technology for 3D printing, and the new materials fulfill the industry requirements for stronger and stiffer products. The new grades do not compromise with smoothness, surface quality, and printability.

The new grades that will be unveiled by DuPont at Formnext 2018 are as follows:

  • Zytel® 3D12G30FL BK309, a black heat-stabilized 30 percent glass-reinforced polyamide with a modulus of 4-5GPA and a heat deflection temperature of >150 C, resistant to most solvents, cleaning agents, automotive fluids and fuels at room temperature.
  • Zytel® 3D10C20FL BK544, a black 20 percent carbon fiber reinforced polyamide for lightweight components with a modulus of 4-5GPA and a heat deflection temperature of >150 C, resistant to most solvents, cleaning agents, automotive fluids and fuels at room temperature.

These two grades will be available at resellers as of January 2019.

The purpose of expanding these high-performance materials into 3D printing to allow users to get greater design liberty, light weighting and lower product development cycles making rapid and easier part production, tool and customization possible.

Business Development Manager, DuPont, said, “To follow these trends, our industrial customers need 3D- printing materials that offer similar formulation, mechanical and chemical properties as our well-known injection moulding grades. These new glass- and carbon-reinforced 3D filaments are a new step in that direction to help the industry move toward cost-efficient, automated and larger scale production,”

DowDuPont Specialty Products, a division of DowDuPont (NYSE: DWDP), is a global innovation leader with technology-based materials, ingredients, and solutions that help transform industries and everyday life.
