AUSTIN, Texas, March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Essentium, Inc., a leading provider of 3D printing technology for additive manufacturing, today announced it is partnering with LEHVOSS Group, a leading innovator of chemical and mineral specialties, to develop high-performance materials for industrial-scale additive manufacturing. Created specifically for extrusion-based 3D printing processes, the materials meet the standards required for industry applications in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, biomedical and electronic manufacturing sectors.

The high cost of 3D printing materials has been a significant obstacle hindering additive manufacturing innovation. In addition, the low performance of materials optimized but not developed for 3D printing has inhibited additive manufacturing success. Manufacturers want polymers they trust and that offer certified standards in their applications.

Essentium and LEHVOSS are addressing this challenge by combining LEHVOSS' extensive experience in thermoplastic high-performance compounds with Essentium's expertise in polymer and composite chemistry to develop engineering-grade materials precisely tuned and certified for a wide range of industry applications.

After two years of collaborative research and development, Essentium has launched a line of PEEK and High-Temperature Nylon (HTN) materials using LUVOCOM® 3F compounds. The materials offer easy printability and non-warping properties, as well as heat and chemical resistance and high mechanical strengths, enabling quality end-parts that can withstand the rigors of the factory floor. Certified on the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSETM) 3D Printing Platform, the materials are suitable for applications such as mechanical engineering, medical technology and parts subject to high stresses for the engine compartment and drive train in the automotive sector.

Thomas Collet, Director 3D Printing Materials & Marketing, LEHVOSS Group: "Partnering with Essentium is a win-win for our industrial customers. Essentium is at the forefront of material science and together we will create a wider range of 3D printing materials certified to meet the performance standards they expect in their end-use parts. Not only will this speed time-to-market and lower the cost to produce the highest quality parts, it will also spur innovation for new additive manufacturing applications."
