M. Holland Company, an international distributor of thermoplastic resins and ancillary materials, has partnered with three new additive manufacturing materials suppliers to expand its 3D Printing product offering by 50%. The company also added M. Holland’s additive manufacturing materials developed for machining and engineering applications.
“During this time of rapid growth for both the industry and M. Holland’s 3D Printing team, adding strategic suppliers is a crucial part of providing our clients a wide assortment of materials to suit their applications,” said Haleyanne Freedman, engineering market manager of 3D Printing at M.Holland. “Offering a comprehensive line card of materials is necessary for our clients to have high-quality materials that enable true adoption of 3D printing technologies into their operations.”
M. Holland signed a distribution agreement with Infinite Material Solutions, a materials innovation group with the intent to build processes that redefine the manufacturing industry. M. Holland now has access to AquaSys 120, a water-soluble filament designed to support parts printed with polypropylene (PP) and polyamide (PA), materials that previously required same-material support. This product is well-suited for applications requiring complex designs and a low level of post-processing, even with extremely high print temperatures. This filament provides universal support with excellent adhesion.
Furthermore, M. Holland is now a North American distributor for Kimya by Armor, a brand of the Armor group dedicated to developing custom materials for additive manufacturing. The agreement includes different types of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) with varied additives: EC ABS (electrically conductive), ABS Kevlar, and polyether block amide (PEBA)-S, a flexible and highly printable material. ABS products offer the ability to conduct electricity through plastic, which can be useful in various electrical applications.
At last, another new partner is taulman3D, a producer of high-strength 3D printing materials. These products include nylons, support materials, copolymers, plasticized copolyamide thermoplastic elastomer (PCTPE), PETT, medical-grade materials, and more. The partnership with taulman3D allows M. Holland’s clients broad access to materials suited for a variety of applications.
M.Holland’s new line of materials for 3D printing applications now include MHC PA6/69, MHC PA/TPE Flex, PA6/69 MED, PA6/6 CNC, and MHC Transparent PET. The group recently relocated to a 63,000-square-foot facility containing 10 fabrication labs, and increased the size of its team by over 50% to support the high demand for its services. The addition of these materials and partnerships continues the business unit’s expansion, offering more options to its clients
