Braskem Expands Additive Manufacturing Portfolio with Polyethylene and Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene 3D Printing Filaments
Glass Fiber Reinforced PP 3D Printing Filament (FL500PP-GF) FL500PP-GF glass fiber reinforced polypropylene filament is a specially formulated co-polymer for additive manufacturing, containing glass fiber for added strength and durability.This formulation is designed to maximize printability, dimensional stability, and surface finish, while minimizing warpage and bed adhesion issues.
Glass fiber reinforced polypropylene filaments have a lower density than other plastics making it up to 30% lighter than traditional PLA and up to three times stiffer than ABS.In addition, polypropylene filaments do not require any drying prior to printing, unlike other materials such as nylon, making it more efficient to work with.These properties, combined with the recyclability of polypropylene, make it an attractive material for a wide range of 3D printing and additive manufacturing applications.Braskem filaments are designed with the end user in mind, making them a great choice for automotive, aerospace, medical, packaging, and other consumer applications.
Polyethylene 3D Printing Filament (FL300PE)FL300PE is a 100% polyethylene filament designed to be easy to print, lightweight, highly moisture and chemical resistant. This filament is ideal for packaging, prototyping, as well as industrial and consumer goods applications. FL300PE is an excellent solution anywhere traditional HDPE resins are typically required.
Polyethylene filaments have historically been difficult to print, prone to warpage and shrinkage.Braskem has taken a fresh look at polyethylene and developed a 100% HDPE filament that has been specifically engineered for 3D printing applications. Braskem's PE filaments are designed to be easy to print, lightweight, recyclable, highly moisture and chemical resistant. This filament is ideal for packaging, rapid prototyping, as well as industrial and consumer goods applications.
