Xenia Materials, a global developer of carbon fiber reinforced polymers, is introducing its new range of PVDF-based compounds for 3D printing pellet-fed applications. This new group of materials ensures the carbon fibre properties mixed with the exceptional PVDF features, opening new opportunities for additive manufacturing production where high performance and chemical resistance is necessary.

Xenia Materials will introduce to the market a 3D printing pellet version of the unfilled PVDF polymer and a groundbreaking range of carbon-fiber-reinforced compounds. Carbon fiber is well-known for its enhancing properties in additive manufacturing, helping to prevent warping during the printing phase while maintaining a smooth surface finish, as well as ensuring dimensional stability and low thermal expansion. Adding carbon fiber to the base material enhances the qualities of the PVDF polymer. This new mix maintains the ease of use of regular PVDF while boosting strength and reducing electrical resistance, meeting ATEX standards.

According to Xenia’s R&D Manager Cristian Zanchetta, “Xenia’s expertise in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, applied to the PVDF polymer base, allows us to leverage our research and development know-how to push boundaries in creating innovative 3D printing materials. Our comprehensive materials portfolio now extends from unfilled PVDF to carbon-fiber-reinforced PVDF, fulfilling every client’s requirements.”

The innovative materials engineered and manufactured by Xenia Material include a wide selection of carbon and/or glass fibre-reinforced composites as well as ultra-light structural composites based on dedicated thermoplastic matrix materials. Furthermore, Xenia has functionalized and adjusted each formulation for the Additive Manufacturing field, to be used in any type of FGF printer. Typical end products markets include sports and agriculture, aerospace, automotive and transportation, oil & gas and alternative energy, building & construction, infrastructure & machinery and medical

Industry professionals will be able to explore the new grades at TCT3Sixty 2024 (BoothJ30) taking place from June 5th to 6th in Birmingham, and at the FIP trade show in Lyon from the 4th to the 7th of June.
