3D printing provider Essentium, Inc. has come out with a line of all-in-one 3D printing adhesives for its portfolio of High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D printing materials. The adhesives were developed in collaboration with Malta-based Thought3D, the company behind the well recognized Magigoo 3D printing bed adhesive brand.

The new product line, Essentium 3D Printing Bed Adhesives – Powered by Magigoo, has been specifically engineered for heated print beds, helping to keep the first layer of the print secure on the build platform until the print is complete. (When the build platform cools, the adhesive releases effortlessly.) This eliminates the need for other adhesive products like tapes, which can be obtrusive, and harsh chemicals.

“Continuous innovation across the entire 3D printing ecosystem is central to the revolutionary shift to large-scale additive manufacturing and Essentium is committed to providing a powerful platform to help manufacturers drive significant performance improvements,” said Brandon Sweeney, Ph.D., Head of R&D for Materials and Co-founder, Essentium Inc. “For customers, these new adhesives enable high-quality prints every time while also being solvent-free and environmentally friendly.”

The adhesive line, available in a large 120 ml format for industrial 3D printing, consists of four products, each tailored to work with a specific material or group of materials. The first, Standard, is compatible with a range of 3D printing filaments; the second, Nylon Filaments, works to adhere Polyamide materials; Flexible Filaments is engineered for thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) filaments; and High-Temperature Filaments is capable of adhesion at high printing temperatures. All four adhesives are now available for purchase.

Thought3D has expanded its range of Magigoo adhesives in recent years, developing tailored sticky solutions for a range of 3D printing materials, including polypropylene, glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene, polycarbonate, Nylon, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and high temperature materials in the PAEK family. The company has also collaborated with other firms in the 3D printing sector, including Polymaker, BigRep and Owens Corning.
