Stratasys, a global leader in polymer 3D printing solutions, has selected KIMYA, an ARMOR company, to provide Stratasys Validated materials for its FDM technology-based systems. With the integration of KIMYA materials such as kimya PEKK-SC and Kimya PC-FR into its ecosystem, Stratasys offers its customers a wider range of materials, greater flexibility, and the ability to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing into their production processes.

Stratasys Validated materials from KIMYA

Stratasys’ FDM technology-based systems, which were previously closed to third-party filaments. As an expert in custom 3D material formulation and provider of production services for finished parts, KIMYA now offers Stratasys’ industrial customers two new materials: EN45545–2 certified polycarbonate filament (Kimya PC-FR) and a polyetherketone filament made from Arkema’s KEPSTAN (Kimya PEKK-SC). These two materials will be marketed from the second half of 2022 and will be used in particular in the rail and oil industries.

KIMYA selected among Stratasys third party material partners for Kimya PC-FR certified polycarbonate and Kimya PEKK-SC polyetherketone “We are expanding our ecosystem of materials to offer our customers a wide range of 3D printing technologies and solutions while ensuring our customers maintain the utmost confidence in the performance of these filaments. That’s why we partner with excellent companies like KIMYA, whose expertise in custom 3D material formulation includes the production of finished parts with use-value,” said Adam Pawloski, Vice President of Manufacturing Solutions at Stratasys.

Accelerating AM adoption

These initial materials begin what both companies say should be a long-term partnership to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing at a production scale. Stratasys and KIMYA also initiated an R&D program with the goal to bring new co-branded filaments to market by Spring of 2023. For example, KIMYA brings unique expertise in formulating recycled 3D materials that could be applied to the collaboration. Additionally, through the provision of a Stratasys Open Materials License, KIMYA will have the opportunity to work directly on the printing parameters of Stratasys printers to develop new custom materials.

“We are delighted to see the expertise of KIMYA’s teams recognized by the world’s leading polymer 3D printing solution provider. Together, we will be able to offer manufacturers new innovative and high-performance materials capable of meeting an ever-growing number of applications. This partnership reflects our common vision of the market, which is to accelerate the transition of additive manufacturing to production scale through the creation of a strong ecosystem. The partnership is a reflection of KIMYA’s vision of the essential role of industry, and more specifically of 3D printing, in today’s world: to produce just, without wasting resources, as close as possible to the needs of the market” concluded Pierre-Antoine Pluvinage, Business Development Director at KIMYA.
