Velox and its long-term partner SK Chemicals are introducing the Skyplete range of 3D printing filament materials to the European market.
“The Skyplete range is one of the most innovative 3D printing materials in our portfolio and an excellent choice for filament manufacturers looking for enhancement of temperature resistance for easy-to-print materials and the refinement of common compounds to improve impact resistance and engineering performance,” comments Manuel Delgado, 3D Printing Market Manager at Velox.
Velox has been chosen as distribution partner in Europe by SK Chemicals of South Korea.
“We are excited to be working together with our long-term partner Velox in developing the 3D printing industry in Europe," states Brian Oh, Business Development Team Leader at SK Chemicals. "We believe that Velox is the most suitable partner to meet our strategic objective to expand the market share in Europe because they have experience in 3D printing industry as well as technical knowledge on SK Chemicals products.”
The Skyplete range includes the PLA-based biodegradable EN100 with a heat resistance (HDT) of 100°C, which is up to twice as high as the HDT of competitive products on the market. The bio-copolyester E-Series offers higher impact and temperature resistance than the widely used ABS and PLA materials, and there are also copolyester materials that combine the advantages of PLA and ABS such as food approval, low odour, easy to print on and good adhesion of the individual layers.
The Skyplete range is designed for filament producers and compounders looking for specialised 3D printing materials with a great range of properties.
