GELEEN, NETHERLANDS: Royal DSM has entered into a partnership with Chromatic 3D Materials to introduce thermoset materials for 3D printing of finished manufactured goods. With the collaboration, DSM further expands its portfolio, now offering the broadest selection of 3D printing materials for the broadest range of printing technologies.

Chromatic 3D is one of the few companies that know how to develop technologies to 3D-print with thermosets, a broad class of materials offering adaptability, durability and resilience not possible with thermoplastics used in conventional 3D printing processes.

Combining DSM’s global market access and expertise with Chromatic’s patented technology, the partners will jointly develop thermoset materials that DSM’s customer’s strategic growth markets are looking for to 3D-print end-use applications. Initial products to be rolled out by DSM include industrial-grade soft and durable thermosets, which are complementary to DSM’s current portfolio of thermoplastics for fused filament fabrication (FFF). Starting immediately, the companies will build a broader portfolio based on customer needs in the strategic markets of footwear (in- and midsoles), transportation (such as in the growing area of automotive electronics), healthcare, electronics and tooling.

“Additive manufacturing or 3D printing technology has the potential to fundamentally change the way products are manufactured – offering consumers personalized and customized products currently not feasible. This requires that manufacturers have a choice of the best combination of material, printing process and software for their application needs. With this partnership with Chromatic, we can offer our customers industrial-grade thermosets currently not available for additive manufacturing,” said Hugo da Silva, vice president of additive manufacturing at DSM. 

“Chromatic 3D Materials and DSM Additive Manufacturing have a shared vision to deliver high performance, industrial grade 3D Printing solutions to manufacturing. Together, we will make the dreams of industrial implementation of 3D Printing a reality,” said Cora Liebig, CEO of Chromatic.
