Solvay teams up with Stratasys to develop high-performance 3D printing materials


Global specialty chemicals company, Solvay has announced a cooperation agreement with additive manufacturing leader, Stratasys to develop new high-performance materials for exclusive use in its FDM F900 3D printers.

The announcement came during RAPID + TCT last week as the companies outlined plans to co-develop a filament based on Solvay’s Radel polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) polymer to meet stringent FAR (Federal Aviation Regulations) 25.853 compliance for use in aerospace applications. The collaboration builds on Solvay’s 25-year expertise in developing Radel PPSU grades specifically for use in aircraft cabin interior components which are compliant with all commercial and regulatory requirements for flammability, smoke density, heat release, and toxic gas emissions.
