Mitsubishi Chemical launched two new materials

Helmond, The Netherlands, 10 July 2019

Mitsubishi Chemical launches two advanced 3DP filaments for the Ultimaker Material Alliance Program.

Durabio and  3Diakon™ , already known for injection molding, are now launched under the brand name of Mitsubishi Chemical and added to the Ultimaker Material Alliance Program.
Ultimaker formed alliances with global material companies to meet the growing demand for industrial-grade engineering materials compatible with the Ultimaker 3D printers. Now, Mitsubishi Chemical adds Durabio™ and 3Diakon™ to this program. They are particularly designed for applications requiring exceptional durable transparency and visual appearance with scratch and impact resistance.    

DURABIO™ is a bio-based material and durable engineering plastic that is made from isosorbide (derived from sorbitol), a widely available feedstock and weathering resistant. DURABIO™ combines most of the advantageous properties of Polycarbonate (PC) and those of the Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), creating an innovative material with extraordinary properties, based on renewable resources.

3Diakon™ PMMA or Polymethyl methacrylate) is a transparent thermoplastic. It is known as having excellent weathering and UV stability combined with excellent impact performance and stiffness. PMMA is characterized as a transparent material and it is reasonable easy to print.
