Sabic launch high strength 3D filament

Chemicals manufacturing company Sabic has launched a new FDM filament at the Formnext show. The Lexan EXL AMHI240F filament is said to have good impact resistance compared to other filaments. It’s said to be suitable for aerospace, consumer and automotive applications.

Sabic has launched a new FDM filament, Lexan EXL AMHI240F.

Sabic already makes some additive manufacturing materials, including six filaments designed for use with Stratasys Fortus printers, and a family of reinforced compounds for large format additive manufacturing, both of which were introduced earlier this year. These technologies are based on the company’s polycarbonate, polyetherimide, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene and polyphenylene ether engineering resins.

The new filament is based on Sabic’s Lexan EXL polycarbonate copolymer technology, which delivers high impact performance and low-temperature ductility. As with Sabic’s other filaments, it’s designed to work with the Stratasys Fortus Classic printers.

Sabic says that this filament is the first in a series and that it intends to launch more materials next year.
