Essentium introduced right now it’s partnering with Braskem, one of many largest producers of polyolefins within the Americas, in addition to a market chief and pioneer producer of biopolymers on an industrial scale.
The businesses say that combining the Essentium Excessive Velocity Extrusion (HSE) 280i HT 3D printer with Braskem’s polyolefin supplies will unlock inexpensive, sustainable, and fast quantity manufacturing of 3D printed thermoplastic elements.
Braskem presents a line of recycled supplies particularly formulated for additive manufacturing options. Sourced primarily from recycled bottle caps, the recycled filaments are available each unfilled and carbon fibre-filled variations. In keeping with Braskem, the FL605R-CF carbon fibre-filled formulation utilises each recycled bottle caps in addition to 100% recycled carbon fibre for added power and sturdiness.
The environmentally pleasant filaments provide differentiated supplies properties akin to low density, in addition to water, chemical, and impression resistance.
Essentium states that with Braskem, extra supplies prospects shall be unlocked via the superior performance of the Essentium HSE 280i, a twin extrusion system that has an open platform with precision management over printing situations and excessive printing speeds.

The truth that Essentium presents a high-speed, open platform implies that producers can now profit from sustainable and accountable materials choices which can be additionally extraordinarily inexpensive,” mentioned Jason Vagnozzi, Braskem’s World Business Director of Additive Manufacturing. “Along with Essentium, we’re democratising 3D printing and offering a aggressive choice to extra industries.”
Blake Teipel, Ph.D., CEO, Essentium, mentioned: “With Braskem, we’ve a real companion who shares our dedication to growing sustainable options to speed up industrial-scale additive manufacturing. Polyolefins are perfect for AM resulting from their recyclability, impression power, chemical resistance, and sturdiness. This makes them an amazing alternative for automotive, aerospace, biomedical, and packaging functions. Our partnership with Braskem will empower producers with built-in options as AM strikes in the direction of prime time of their industries.”
