The Group will exhibit a range of industrial parts based on Kepstan® PEKK. Among ultra-high performance thermoplastic materials, Kepstan® PEKK is uniquely positioned as the only material amenable to both filament extrusion and powder bed fusion technologies.

Arkema will also introduce Graphistrength® C M17-20, a Kepstan® PEKK based multi wall Carbon Nanotube masterbatch designed to impart ESD properties in filament printing applications.

Arkema will highlight its comprehensive range of Rilsan® bio-based fine polyamide powders for powder bed fusion technologies. These high performance polyamides have become the materials of choice in the design and manufacture of final production parts and are specified in a growing number of critical applications thanks to their unparalleled mechanical strength and durability.

Together with our partners, we will also feature Rilsan® polyamide 11 grades with added functionality, opening up a wider scope of possibilities in terms of applications and properties. For example Advanced Laser Materials, LLC and Prodways Materials will showcase reinforced polyamide grades. These materials exhibit unique properties such as greater rigidity for higher temperature applications and superior dimensional stability.

Through its Sartomer business unit, Arkema will introduce brand new products from the N3xtDimension® line of UV-curable engineered resins. These resins help additive manufacturers yield unique high end properties, high definition, and fulfill performance and regulatory requirements for a wide range of industrial applications.
Products featured during the event will also include a unique selection of tailor made monomers and oligomers that allow greater freedom of design and customized properties such as impact resistance, higher resolution, greater flexibility, improved processability, and increased toughness and transparency.


Come and visit our stand H58 in Hall 3.1, from 13 to 16 November 2018 to talk to our experts and find out about our 3D Printing Solutions offering.
