Xenia Materials, a global manufacturer of carbon fibre reinforced polymers, has launched a new line of PVDF compounds for pellet 3D printing applications. This novel series of materials combines carbon fibre qualities with outstanding PVDF features, creating new prospects for additive manufacturing production where high performance and chemical resistance are required.

PVDF compounds for Pellet 3D Printing

Xenia Materials plans to launch a 3D printing pellet version of the unfilled PVDF polymer, as well as a variety of carbon-fibre reinforced compositions. Carbon fibre is well-known for its excellent properties in additive manufacturing, including the ability to prevent warping during the printing phase while keeping a clean surface quality, as well as dimensional stability and low thermal expansion.

The addition of carbon fibre to the base material improves the properties of the PVDF polymer. This new combination maintains the simplicity of use of traditional PVDF while increasing strength and lowering electrical resistance to fulfil ATEX regulations.

“Xenia’s expertise in carbon-fibre reinforced polymer, applied to the PVDF polymer base, allows us to leverage our research and development know-how to push boundaries in creating innovative 3D printing materials. Our comprehensive materials portfolio now extends from unfilled PVDF to carbon-fibre-reinforced PVDF, fulfilling every client requirements.” 

– Cristian Zanchetta, R&D manager, Xenia Materials

Xenia Materials encourages industry professionals to investigate the new grades at TCT3Sixty 2024, which will be held in Birmingham from June 5th to 6th, and the FIP trade show in Lyon from June 4th to 7th.
