Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, announced the release of a flame-retardant filament material, Novamid AM1030 FR, a UL Blue Card-certified filament for open systems. The material suits applications in the automotive and electronics sectors, among others.
Novamid AM1030 FR is for users looking for an easy-to-use, flame-retardant material to run in their open system. The material is certified as V0 at 1.6 and 3.2 mm, and as V2 at 0.85 mm and is a PA6/66 material.
The material was tested in a UL-certified lab with a part built on an S5 printer of DSM’s partner Ultimaker. The UL Blue Card certifies the combination of material and printer. However, as it is an open-systems material, any and all manufacturers with access to an open-platform, fused filament fabrication system can work with the new material.
Novamid AM1030 FR is a non-halogenated material, making it a logical choice for manufacturers looking for environmentally friendly, high-performance materials.
