Covestro (former DSM AM) introduces 3D printing material made from recycled PET

Materials manufacturer Covestro introduces its first material developed by the additive manufacturing business recently acquired from DSM: a glass-fiber filled recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) for 3D pellet printing. Made from post-consumer PET waste, Arnite® AM2001 GF (G) rPET perfectly fits Covestro’s vision for a Circular Economy and illustrates how complementary the two organizations are in their approach to adding more value to additive manufacturing and industrial production overall.

 Arnilene® AM6002 (P) is a Polypropylene powder optimized for selective laser sintering 3D printing  large batches of engineering grade, tough, complex applications across multiple industries. Food contact approved.

Somos® QuickGen 500 is a fast-printing DLP/LCD material with unique flexibility and a print speed 2x faster than similar materials. It offers accurate printing for general and functional prototypes.
