Solvay helps Stratasys materials program

Stratasys has set up a partner program to encourage more materials manufacturers to develop polymer-based materials for use with those of its 3D printers that use the fused deposition modeling process.

The Stratasys F900 is essentially a reworking of the Fortus 900mc, and is available in a choice of three configurations.

Solvay has become the first company to join this program with new polymers for Stratasys’ F900 3D printer. Stratasys will use the authorized materials partner program to give Solvay access to exclusive tools and Stratasys expertise to develop materials that match Stratasys’ quality and performance benchmarks. 

Rich Garrity, president of Stratasys American operation, noted: “By combining our expertise with Solvay, customers can make use of a broad range of high performance applications – all while maintaining the level of quality and reliability expected from Stratasys high-performance FDM consumables.”

Solvay, which is headquartered in Brussels, is an advanced materials and specialty chemicals company. It’s Specialty Polymers division manufactures over 1500 products across 35 brands of high-performance polymers – fluoropolymers, fluoroelastomers, fluorinated fluids, semi-aromatic polyamides, sulfone polymers, ultra-high performance aromatic polymers, and high‑barrier polymers – for use in aerospace, healthcare, packaging and other industries.
