The Lubrizol Corporation's Lubrizol Engineered Materials business will showcase its specialty materials for 3D Printing (3DP) technologies along with the latest product release Estane 3D ECO TPU: a renewable-sourced grade with over 30% bio-based content in booth #133 at RAPID + TCT 2019, May 21-23, 2019 in Detroit, MI.
Lubrizol Engineered Polymers has launched Estane 3D TPU F95A-030 BR ECO, a UV-stabilized thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), with shore 95A hardness, that is processed by fused filament fabrication (FFF). It provides a differentiated value proposition for designers looking for a polymer that shows improved flexibility, thin walls, high transparency and layer-to-layer bonding performance. The new grade complements the existing commercial Estane 3D TPU portfolio that has grown after close collaboration with customers to cover a broad range of 3DP applications in automotive, dental, sports and industrial sectors.
“Estane 3D ECO TPU is part of our strategy to build our FFF portfolio based upon customer and market requirements, ensuring same or superior level of properties both for prototype and mass production opportunities, along with the renewability feature,” says David Pascual, global 3DP marketing manager.
In addition to new FFF grades, Lubrizol is working on a full range of TPU solutions suitable for different 3DP technologies such as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), High Speed Sintering (HSS) and HP Multi Jet Fusion(TM) (MJF).
