Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Elkem Silicones will showcase its latest product innovation, enlarging its portfolio of silicone solutions of the AMSil and AMSil Silbione ranges for Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing, at the upcoming Formnext show in Frankfurt Germany from November 15th to 18th 2022.

Already acknowledged for its disruptive silicone solutions as a winner in the 2021 R&D 100 award, Elkem Silicones is continuing its material innovation campaign in Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing. With the new developments, Elkem Silicones is now able to provide products from ShA 10 to ShA 70 with all well-known properties of 100% silicones for LDM (Liquid Deposit Molding) based systems. Besides their use in medical and industrial applications the range now also allows the use in Food Grade applications.

Elkem Silicones will also present the recently developed support material, the AMSil 92100 series. This material is a paste-like formulation suitable for use in common with the AMSil and AMSil Silbione range allowing to take advantage of features and structures associated with the freedom of design approach inherent to AM. The material is water-soluble and can be washed off during the post-processing phase.

This year, the Elkem booth will host a fully equipped 3D printer from Deltatower, Switzerland, allowing multi-material printing with different silicones simultaneously as well as other materials. Examples of multi-material objects will be showcased at the booth.

Actual results and the potential of radiation-curing silicone systems will be given in a paper titled “UV-curable silicone elastomeric materials designed for 3D printing technologies (SLA, DLP, LCD) and medical applications“based on Elkem Silicones formulations in a joint presentation by Thomas Brossier (3D Medlab) and Dr Jean-Marc Frances (Elkem Silicones) on the Introducing Stage, to be held Friday 18th November at 12:00 pm.

These examples of the latest developments show the commitment from Elkem Silicones to Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing and its potential of being part of a more sustainable economy in the future. Driving Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing to an industrial scale as part of the factory of the future through Digital Manufacturing will help create innovative, profitable and sustainable solutions for customers reducing the environmental impact by reducing waste but also achieving savings on transportation and storage costs, two big contributors to the total carbon footprint of end-products.
