Kimya, a French brand launched by ARMOR, and experts in the formulation and characterization of materials dedicated to additive manufacturing, has expanded its range of high-performance 3D filaments with the launch of Kimya PC-FR.

Kimya PC-FR is a ready-to-use smokeless polycarbonate plastic that can withstand temperatures up to 105°C. This material joins the 25 or so filaments that KIMYA – with the help of its resellers – distributes throughout approximately 20 countries, including 10 technical, and eight high-performance filaments.

Kimya launches new PC-FR filament with EN45545 certification. A ready-to-use smokeless polycarbonate plastic. Certified to EN45545-2 level HL1/HL2/HL3/R1, and R6, Kimya PC-FR filament is particularly well-suited for applications in sectors concerned with fire safety, such as mass transportation (rail, aviation, and naval, for example).

“Due to its specific technical characteristics, Kimya PC-FR is an ideal material for printing mechanisms and railway parts that are subject to high heat, such as runners to increase the wheel-rail adhesion of a train in case of emergency braking,” said Nicolas Morand, R&D, Innovation, and Industrialization manager at KIMYA.

Kimya PC-FR filament has been approved on miniFactory’s Ultra model printer. miniFactory is a Finnish printer manufacturer and has been a KIMYA partner since 2018.

This new filament was also validated by Stratasys earlier this year – allowing their users to benefit from an extended filament range, increase flexibility, and accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing to their production process. KIMYA has established numerous partnerships with 3D printer manufacturers in an attempt to make the printing process easier for all users. The company’s aim is for KIMYA filaments to be approved on their partner’s machines – to serve industrial and professional office services.
