Perstorp sets up jv company with 3D4Makers

Sweden’s speciality chemicals company Perstorp and 3D4Makers, a 3D printing filament producer, are joining forces with a new joint venture known as ElogioAM, to bring new material solutions in order to advance the additive manufacturing industry. By combining the deep insights of both companies into chemicals and polymers, ElogioAM is bringing the world’s first fifth-generation 3D filament, Facilan, which enables applications previously unobtainable with other 3D printing materials.

ElogioAM aims to enable true deployment of Additive Manufacturing capability for medical, fashion, orthotics, advanced prototyping, modeling, demanding industry and consumer markets. The company has a unique product range in the 3D printing filament family Facilan, created from the ground up and always with safety and fit for purpose in mind to serve the requirements of 3D printing users. Facilan filaments have been designed to outperform. Facilan C8 3D printed parts, for example, have higher impact and tensile strength than ABS filaments while being based on compostable raw materials. Facilan C8 parts have a soft touch feel and are smoother than PLA and ABS parts. More developments are ongoing together with orthotics and insoles researchers to develop new 3D printing solutions.

Facilan PCL 100 is a pure polycaprolactone filament that is being used by researchers in artificial muscles, drug loaded implants, scaffolds and smart materials. The Facilan portfolio of materials aims to be the most innovative collection of 3D printing filaments in the market, say the companies.

ElogioAM will be based in the Netherlands, Haarlem, and its incorporation is pending approval from authorities.
