Braskem offerings on display at Rapid + TCT will include:

3D Filaments for Additive Manufacturing

Polyethylene Filament (FL300PE)
Braskem FL300PE is a 100% Polyethylene (PE) filament designed to be easy to print, lightweight, highly moisture and chemical resistant. This filament is ideal for packaging, prototyping, as well as industrial and consumer goods applications. FL300PE is an excellent solution anywhere traditional HDPE resins are typically required.

Polypropylene (PP) Filament (FL105PP)
Braskem FL105PP Polypropylene filament is a specially formulated co-polymer for additive manufacturing.  This formulation is design to maximize printability, dimensional stability, and surface finish, while minimizing warpage. 

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene Filament (FL900PP-CF)
Braskem, FL900PP-CF Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene filament is a specially formulated co-polymer for additive manufacturing.  Contains 100% recycled carbon fiber for optimal strength and durability.  This formulation is design to maximize printability, dimensional stability, and surface finish, while minimizing warpage.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene Filament (FL500PP-GF)
Braskem, FL500PP-GF Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene filament is a specially formulated co-polymer for additive manufacturing.  Contains glass fiber for added strength and durability.  This formulation is designed to maximize printability, dimensional stability, and surface finish, while minimizing warpage and bed adhesion issues.

Recycled Polyolefin Filament with Carbon Fiber (FL605R-CF)
Braskem FL605R-CF is an engineering-grade polymer for additive manufacturing, containing 90% recycled content. Primarily sourced from recycled bottle caps, FL605R-CF is a recycled PE/PP blend that incorporates the use of recycled carbon fiber for added strength and durability. FL605R-CF provides a more sustainable solution without sacrificing printability and mechanical properties. This environmentally friendly filament provides the same low density as well as water, chemical, and impact resistance inherent to virgin polyethylene and polypropylene-based materials.

3D Pellets for Additive Manufacturing

Polypropylene Pellets (GR105PP)
Braskem GR105PP Polypropylene pellets are a specially formulated co-polymer for additive manufacturing.  This formulation is design to maximize printability, dimensional stability, and surface finish, while minimizing warpage. 

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene Pellets (GR900PP-CF)
Braskem, FL900PP-CF Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene pellets are a specially formulated co-polymer for additive manufacturing.  Contains 100% recycled carbon fiber for optimal strength and durability.  This formulation is design to maximize printability, dimensional stability, and surface finish, while minimizing warpage.
