Press Release3.4.2019 12:15 EET UPM and Carbodeon are developing cellulose and nanodiamond reinforced raw materials for 3D printing. The nanodiamond additives provide the product not only improved stiffness and strength but also higher heat deflection temperature. The product novelties will be available both for Fused Granular Fabrication (FGF) and for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF).. ‘By joining our forces we are able to combine the excellent mechanical properties and printing speed of nanodiamond enhanced 3D printing products to UPM cellulose based 3D printing raw materials,’ says Vesa Myllymäki , CEO, Carbodeon. The printing speed is significantly enhanced due to compound tailored thermal and flow properties. Fine cellulose fibres in turn brings self-supporting melt flow, enabling objects with round or other complex shapes to be printed without warpage problems. Another benefit of cellulose biocomposite is its wood like post processing. Prints not only have pleasant matte surface touch and feel but […]
