DuPont Performance Materials (DuPont) announces that customers can now purchase DuPont Hytrel thermoplastic elastomer and DuPont Zytel nylon-based filaments for 3D printing in the United States, Canada and Mexico through Coex LLC.
With Hytrel available in two different hardness levels (Hytrel 3D4000FL with a shore D of 40 and Hytrel 3D4100 with a shore D of 60) for 3D printing, customers can make flexible functional parts that combine resiliency, heat and chemical resistance with strength and durability. Mechanical properties of 3D printed parts in all directions using Hytrel grades are comparable to injection molding.
With Zytel 3D1000FL, customers can make strong and stiff functional parts. Along with superior strength, parts printed with Zytel product also have high heat deflection temperature, low warpage, low sensitivity to moisture and excellent surface aesthetics.
