RIZE, Inc. announced immediate availability of RIZIUM Glass Fiber (GF), a composite 3D printing material with the high-dimensional stability and high stiffness for strength required for printing large parts. This material is suitable for full-color parts, and the stability to support parts with complex geometries that often can warp. It can be used in life sciences, communications, and branding applications that need life-like color in durable parts.
Available on RIZE’s entire suite of 3D printers including those from RIZIUM Alliance industry partners, RIZIUM Glass Fiber is based on RIZE’s cyclic olefin-based matrix that does not release emissions at extrusion temperatures, and has low moisture absorption, and high chemical resistance. The material works with Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) — a digital material technology that lets polymer material combine with functional inks to create new material properties. RIZIUM GF is stable over large build volumes.
RIZIUM Glass Fiber also has obtained UL GREENGUARD Certification on the XRIZE full-color composite 3D printing platform, confirming it is safe to be used in offices/schools/hospitals and any enclosed spaces. The new material expands the portfolio of the RIZIUM Alliance, where other 3D printing industry partners can implement safer, sustainable, reyclable 3D printing on a variety of platforms, such as the RIZE 2XC.
RIZIUM Glass Fiber is RIZE’s fourth innovation to obtain UL GREENGUARD Certification – including its XRIZE full-color composite 3D printer, RIZIUM ST 3D printing filament material, RIZIUM inks, and RIZE One monochrome printer. Based on the ANSI/CAN/UL 2904 Standard Method for Testing and Assessing Particle and Chemical Emissions from 3D Printers, UL GREENGUARD Certification affirms that materials and products emit low levels of chemicals into indoor air during use and contribute to safer, healthier indoor air.
