SHANGHAI, Dec. 11, 2017 ─ DuPont is pleased to announce that customers can now purchase DuPont™ Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer and DuPont™ Zytel® nylon-based filaments for 3D printing in China through Shenzhen eSUN Industrial Co. Ltd.
DuPont 3D printing products allow users to achieve true benefits of 3D printing (greater design freedom, light weighting, reduced product development cycle times) allowing for rapid functional prototyping, parts production, tooling and customization in all sectors of the industry, such as automotive, electronics, footwear, consumer goods and others.
With Hytrel® available in two different hardness levels (Hytrel® 3D4000FL with a Shore D of 40 and Hytrel® 3D4100 with a Shore D of 60) for 3D printing, customers will be able to make flexible functional parts that combine resiliency, heat and chemical resistance with strength and durability. Mechanical properties of 3D printed parts in all directions using Hytrel® grades are comparable to injection molding. With Zytel® 3D1000FL, customers will be able to make strong and stiff functional parts. Along with superior strength, parts printed with Zytel® product also have high heat deflection temperature, low warpage, low sensitivity to moisture, and excellent surface aesthetics.
