SABIC (Pittsfield, MA, US) has launched six new filaments for fused deposition modeling (FDM) and a new family of reinforced compounds for large format additive manufacturing. The first product family is based on technology that enables laser sintering of polycarbonate (PC) materials with good mechanical properties and part densities greater than 96%. These materials may provide an alternative to polyamide 12 (PA 12) and can be processed using commercially available printers. Second, EXTEM polyimide (PI) filaments are designed for high-temperature solutions for additive manufacturing and offer performance greater than the company's ULTEM polyetherimide (PEI) filaments. Finally, high-impact-strength PC filaments offer improved impact resistance compared to other commercially available PC filaments, and can be processed at standard PC conditions. Potential advantages include reduced part damage in secondary operations, and higher levels of performance in end-use applications.
