Covestro, a leading materials company, is extending its collaboration with 3D printer manufacturer Stratasys by adding new validated filaments to the material ecosystem for FDM technology, starting with the Addigy PA6/66-GF20 FR LS filament, a glass fiber reinforced nylon. The Performance materials are verified and optimized for one of the most reliable FDM printer platforms resulting in this expanded collaboration between two global players with a comprehensive 3D printing offer.

FDM is the third 3D printing technology on which both companies are collaborating, as Covestro Somos® resins are already available on the Stratasys Neo printers for stereolithography and the Origin One P3™ material ecosystem, providing production-ready “material+printer” solutions that meet manufacturing requirements.

Addigy PA6/66-GF20 FR LS filament is the first Covestro filament in Stratasys’ new FDM open material ecosystem announced at Formnext trade fair last November. The flame-resistant Low Smoke filament is one of few commercial filaments that meet norms EN 45545-2, NFPA 130 (ASTM E162, ASTM E662), SMP 800-C and FAR 25.853. Its certifications for flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) make it suitable for railway and other transportation applications.

As 3D printing moves to the factory floor, manufacturing customers need access to functional materials that bring the right properties to their applications and meet specifications. Open ecosystems bring material and printer companies together to optimize the printing process and bring manufacturers ease of mind as they accelerate the use of additive manufacturing in their production. They also provide dual materials sourcing for mitigating risk.

“Manufacturers have already been benefitting from our collaboration with Stratasys on the Neo and Origin P3™ platforms,” commented Hugo da Silva, Vice President Additive Manufacturing at Covestro. “By adding Covestro filaments to the Stratasys FDM material ecosystem, they gain access to material innovation to address many more applications.”
