Sabic Review

Sabic unveils Thermocomp

Sabic, a global leader in the chemical industry, today introduced to the European market a family of high-performance Thermocomp AM compounds to address the unique requirements of large format additive manufacturing.

At Formnext 2017, in stand 3.1-G78, the company exhibited these eight new compounds, developed for use in large-format pellet-fed extruders. Print parameters and mechanical property data for the materials – developed by Sabic using test specimens printed on the company’s in-house BAAM printer – are available to aid customers in expediting material selection and optimising processing conditions.

Because they are reinforced with carbon or glass fibres for added strength, the new Thermocomp AM compounds can be used for demanding applications in the tooling, aerospace, automotive and defence.
