Arkema, a French chemical and materials company, is expected to open a 3D Printing Center of Excellence within its facility in Exton, Pennsylvania next week.

This new R&D lab will focus on developing innovative 3D printing resins through its partner Sartomer, a global supplier of advanced additive manufacturing materials.

Printing - Center - Excellence - Support - Visionaries

“We’re launching the 3D Printing Center of Excellence to deepen our support of the visionaries working to develop innovative 3D printed materials,” said Sumeet Jain, Global Director of 3D Printing at Sartomer.

Countries - Arkema - Materials - Specialty - Polyamides

Officially launched in 2004 and now operating in approximately 50 countries, Arkema has developed materials, including specialty polyamides resins, for high-performance end-use applications.

According to Jain, with Arkema Group’s commitment “to enable 3D Printing to mass manufacturing through innovative material technologies” this new center will include state of the art wet chemistry labs, a formulation development and testing facility with a wide range of analytical equipment, and an application center housing multiple 3D Printers.

Printers - Range - Technologies - Stereolithography - SLA

The 3D printers will also cover a range of photo-curable based technologies such as stereolithography(SLA), Digital Light Processing (DLP), and MultiJet Printing (MJP). The center will additionally provide a collaborative space for chemists and engineers to develop custom resins for specific customer needs.
