WILMINGTON, DE, Sep 22, 2017 – DuPont Performance Materials (DuPont) is pleased to announce 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.
DuPont 3D printing products allow users to achieve the true benefits of 3D printing (greater design freedom, lightweighting, reduced product development cycle times) allowing for rapid functional prototyping, parts production, tooling and customization in all sectors of the industry, such as automotive, electronics, footwear, consumer goods and others.
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 will be able to 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 will be able to 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.
Proven over decades of use, DuPont Hytrel thermoplastic elastomers and DuPont Zytel nylons offer high quality, reliability and performance in various applications in a wide range of industries.
