17 Dec Polymakr & Natureworks Partnership
November 17, 2014 – Polymakr, a next-generation 3D printing filament company, brings new eco-responsible bio-based filaments made with Ingeo™ biopolymer to the 3D printing market. Polymakr is honoured to be the first preferred supplier in China as recognised by NatureWorks.
NatureWorks, the world’s leading supplier of biopolymers, has licensed Polymakr to use the Ingeo™ brand name and logo in the 3D printing industry, evidence of the confidence that NatureWorks has in the quality of Polymakr’s products. All of Polymakr’s PLA-based filaments are made with Ingeo™. The inherent properties of Ingeo™ also makes it highly desirable for 3D printing. It has low poly-mer thermal shrinkage that enables high resolution printing of the most complex parts. In addition, its low melting point allows safer and lower temperature printing. In order to optimise the quality, Polymakr is dedicated to innovation and employs a level of quality control not seen in the 3D print-ing industry to date. With a seven step quality control process, Polymakr’s filaments are guaranteed to produce an unprecedented diameter consistency and enhanced material properties that help yield a better overall printing experience, ensuring the efficiency of 3D printers and empowering consumers to create strong, functional 3D printed products.
Polymakr’s commitment to innovation and sustainability is not only evident in the materials they produce, but can also be traced back to the ingredients and associated technologies used to make them. NatureWorks captures carbon using abundant, locally available, sustainable resources and transforms it into Ingeo, a naturally advanced biopolymer. The production of Ingeo™ emits 80% less greenhouse gases and uses 60% less non-renewable energy than incumbent oil-based plastics such as ABS.
