Innofil3D has developed an engineering filament with high heat resistance and high dimensional stability.Innofil3D
In collaboration with Polyscope Polymers from the Netherlands, Innofil3D developed an ABS filament which is engineered for 3D-printing.
Polyscope offers solutions for enhancing the performance of various engineering plastics like ABS by adding Styrene Maleic Anhydride (SMA) which provides benefits such as high heat resistance and high dimensional stability.
Innofil3D has the capabilities and facilities to analyse material behaviour during 3D-printing and realise improvements.
This resulted in an optimised ABS grade for 3D-printing:
The majority of the ABS filaments available on the market are primarily general purpose injection moulding grades. This has an adverse effect on the material properties and usability of these FDM filaments and doesn’t allow the end-user to reap full potential of 3D-printing. With ABS Fusion⁺ Innofil3D offers an engineering filament which is optimized for 3D-printing. The companies have focussed on:
