Designed for use with any brand of compatible Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer, the new filament withstands high temperatures, strongly bonds with ABS and PLA plastics and rinses away with water.
Until now, the most basic method of employing support is to use the same material that is used for the object being printed. Here, the support is erected similarly to scaffolding on a building and "props up" any steeply angled overhangs. Referred to as "breakable" support, this type of support is effective.

THE BUSINESS CASE FOR SUSTAINABILITY IN THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY IN 2020 & BEYOND

Article | March 3, 2020

Sustainability fervor – which has been building in importance over the past few years – has reached a new height in 2020. Chemical industry leaders made lofty statements at the World Economic Forum in Davos about the importance of engaging in sustainable development. Despite that, the chemicals industry is big, conservative, and typically slow to move. This raises the question: "What factors will really force change in the chemicals industry, and what does that change look like?" In this blog, we examine three possible drivers of change – carbon taxes, investor pressure, and supply chain pressure – and discuss their possible implications. We specifically focus on chemical companies, as highly carbon-intensive industries like cement and steel face a very different picture with respect to sustainability challenges.
