Polymer science company DuPont Performance Materials has introduced a new range of 3D printing filaments based on some of its existing polymers. The new filaments, which were presented at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group Conference in Chicago, include Dupont Hytrel thermoplastic elastomers, DuPont Zytel nylons, and DuPont Surlyn ionomers.

The materials Hytrel, Zytel, and Surlyn have been developed and used by DuPont Performance Materials for over a decade. Now, the three plastics have been adapted for use with 3D printers, offering users high-performance and reliable 3D printing filaments. Using its new filaments, Dupont Performance Materials says users will be able to enjoy the full benefits of 3D printing, including “greater design freedom, light weighting, reduced product development cycles and much more.”
