The agreement includes different types of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) with varied additives: EC ABS (electrically conductive), ABS Kevlar, and polyether block amide (PEBA)-S, a flexible and highly printable material. The ABS products offer the ability to conduct electricity through plastic, which can be useful in various electrical applications.
- taulman3D: M. Holland now has full access to the entire product offering from taulman3D, a producer of high-strength 3D printing materials. These products include nylons, support materials, copolymers, plasticized copolyamide thermoplastic elastomer (PCTPE), PETT, medical-grade materials and more. The partnership with taulman3D allows M. Holland’s clients broad access to materials suited for a variety of applications.
M. Holland also announced its new line of materials for 3D printing applications. This portfolio comprises specialty prime compounds that deliver extremely high value and performance. The new products include MHC PA6/69, MHC PA/TPE Flex, PA6/69 MED, PA6/6 CNC and MHC Transparent PET. All M. Holland materials for 3D printing are flexible, versatile and easily printable.
