Designed for use with Stratasys Ltd.'s Fortus printers, the new filaments are based on the company's Ultem [TM] polyetherimide (PEI) resin, Cycolac [TM] acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene
(ABS) resin and Lexan[TM] polycarbonate (PC) resin, and offer the same composition as the company's injection molding grades.
Tensile strength was increased by 400 percent, while maintaining the high elongation over the starting latex in paper testing prior to any crosslinking or vulcanization of the acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene
lattices," said Jeffrey Mathys, R&D Manager for Emerald Specialty Polymers.
They cover the state-of-the-art thermo-mechanico-chemical rubber regeneration, the recycling of polymers as feedstock in coke manufacture and ironmaking, the preparation of coating powder from post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate packaging, effective screw-disc extrusion in the processing of recycled polymers and their composites, plastics flotation, recycling natural rubber-based waste tires, the magnetic density separation of polymer wastes, and recycling the post-consumer engineering thermoplastics acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene
