NatureWorks Launches New Initiative to Support the Growing 3D Printing Market

NatureWorks announced a broad new initiative to support the growth of the additive manufacturing market. The company's move to support the 3D market comprehensively is based on a three pronged approach. It includes the introduction of an entirely new series of Ingeo grades designed specifically for PLA filament for the 3D printing market; a full suite of technical support services for the additive manufacturing 3D printer and filament producers; and the creation of an in-house print lab, enabling the company to rapidly test new Ingeo formulations and collaborate with printer and filament producers. NatureWorks is the PLA supplier with more than 20 different Ingeo grades, expertise with numerous specialized formulations, and more than a decade of world-scale production experience. In the 3D printing market, and particularly for desktop users, PLA filament has become a material of first choice in printing. The material's low polymer thermal shrinkage allows high resolution printing for part accuracy and avoids warping of parts. Strong polymer fusing performance makes PLA easy to use and enhances performance. A relatively low melt point enables safe lower temperature printing, and very low emissions means no unpleasant odors when printing.

NatureWorks Announces Availability of New ABS Replacement Formulations

NatureWorks announced the availability of new ABS replacement formulations clearly demonstrating that its naturally advanced Ingeo resins have evolved into a practical and safe alternative for a broad range of styrenics in terms of performance, price, and eco profile. Three new formulated Ingeo injection molding offerings built on NatureWorks heat-stable technology platform offer a range of impact and modulus performance features in tandem with excellent chemical resistance. Two formulations offer medium and high impact performance with high bio content. This makes them ideal for injection molding applications particularly those currently utilizing ABS. Additionally, a high modulus Ingeo formulation for profile extrusion applications maintains excellent impact performance and, just as with the injection molding offerings, this formulation's high stiffness (up to 50% higher flex modulus) offers opportunities for downgauging and materials savings.
