Roboze, an Italian 3D printing company specializing in FFF solutions, has teamed up with SABIC, a global manufacturer in diversified chemicals headquartered in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Roboze’s printer platform now offers a new a new polycarbonate filament for FFF made by SABIC.
Launched at the formnext 3D printing expo in Frankfurt last November, it is a unique polycarbonate copolymer characterized by high impact resistance and ductility at low temperatures (up to -30° C). It was developed for demanding applications in industries such as aerospace, consumer, and automotive.
In contrast to standard polycarbonates this new material can deliver up to four times better notched Izod impact at room temperature, and up to three times higher at -30°C, depending on printing orientation.
Keith Cox, senior business leader in Additive Manufacturing at SABIC, said, “We are pleased to have Roboze offer LEXAN EXL AMHI240F filament on their printer platform. Our vision of helping the additive manufacturing industry to expand the use of engineering materials in end use applications aligns well with the capability of Roboze to deliver high quality printers for use in industrial environments.”
