Stratasys and Solvay Accomplice to Put Up New FDM Materials to Market and Grow Adoption in Manufacturing

For over two decades, Stratasys has helped clients engineer durable, very repeatable 3D printed parts for high-performance environments leveraging its advanced materials – including FDM® Nylon 12CF, FDM® TPU 92A, and Antero™ 800NA PEKK-based material. Under the authorized materials accomplice program, Solvay will get to exclusive tools and Stratasys expertise to create materials lined up with the organization’s quality and performance benchmarks. The accomplices will share an approved accomplice materials guide to control Solvay’s choice and improvement of materials for Stratasys FDM printers.

“Stratasys is committed to expanding our portfolio of advanced, specialized materials for high performance FDM printers – enabling manufacturers to readily use 3D printing for production applications,” said Rich Garrity, President, Americas, for Stratasys. “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.”

“With this strategic partnership, we are combining Stratasys’ leadership in fused deposition modelling 3D printing with Solvay’s leadership in developing high-performance, AM-ready materials for the most demanding applications in a large number of industries,” said Christophe Schramm, Business Manager for Additive Manufacturing in Solvay’s Specialty Polymers Global Business Unit. “This is fully in line with Solvay’s ambition to push the limits of high-performance additive manufacturing.”

Stratasys is divulging its collaboration agreement with Solvay at RAPID+TCT 2019 in the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan.
