AMT, a leading manufacturer of automated post-processing technology, has announced the launch of a new sustainable FDA-approved chemistry for vapor smoothing 3D printed parts. The PostPro Pure patent-pending for green vapor smoothing chemistry is now available for AMT’s PostPro Surface Finishing (SF) systems.

AMT’s green chemistry replacement, known as PostPro Pure, has undergone several years of testing and research by scientists at AMT and directly aligns with the company’s goal of prioritizing the preservation of our planet.

PostPro Pure is a fully green vapor smoothing chemistry that is sustainably manufactured. It is non-toxic, non-halogenated, readily biodegradable, non-marine pollutant, food grade and has no regulatory restrictions. The chemistry will be available to use on newly purchased SF machines, and additionally as an optional upgrade to existing SF machines in 2023.

“Our livelihood and health depend on a clean and safe environment. Therefore, safe, and green manufacturing methods are among the top priorities of our company. The introduction of a new green chemistry range for our post-processing is the result of a dedicated R&D program implemented several years ago. In addition to sustainability, we’ve improved the quality, accuracy, and repeatability, while additionally reducing the energy consumption and cost of our process.”, said AMT’s Global Head of R&D, Dr. Konstantin Rybalcenko.

There is a distinct connection between additive manufacturing and sustainability, as it is an undeniably greener alternative to traditional manufacturing methods. The post-processing of additive manufactured parts is crucial and required for end-use applications meaning this step cannot be skipped. It is only natural for a solution to emerge with the preservation of the planet in mind. The additive manufacturing ecosystem at large is the driving movement toward a more sustainable future for mass production, and AMT’s systems and solutions are at the cutting edge of these efforts.

AMT’s CEO Joseph Crabtree stated, “There is no denying that traditional methods of manufacturing are extremely wasteful and consume large amounts of material and energy. Here at AMT, our goal is to continually advance our technology not only to set the standard for post-processing but to enhance the positive impact our technology has on the planet. While our current chemistry has been approved for use across multiple accredited industries, we knew we had the ability to create the purest post-processing chemistry on the market, and that is exactly what you will get from PostPro Pure.”
