Verbatim, which is part of the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group, announces two new filament materials – PET and high performance PLA – for use with widely available fused fabrication filament (FFF) 3D printers and offering improved versatility, transparency and print quality. Manufactured in Japan, the highly advanced materials will expand the company’s range of 3D printing options available to product designers, design engineers, manufacturers, hobbyists and more.
The new PET and high performance PLA filaments will be demonstrated in public for the first time on the Verbatim’s stand (Stand H12) at the TCT Show in Birmingham NEC, UK, held between 28-29 September. The new filaments complement the company’s existing portfolio of top grade ABS, PLA and ultra flexible PRIMALLOY™ (TPE) filaments. Also on display will be two other filaments that are soon to be launched: BVOH, a water-soluble support material; and PP (Polypropylene), a commonly used tough and flexible plastic.
