Facilan enables applications previously unobtainable with other 3D printing materials.

PERSTORP, SWEDEN: Perstorp AB and 3D4Makers BV are joining forces with a new joint venture: ElogioAM, to bring new material solutions in order to advance the additive manufacturing industry. By combining the deep insights of both companies into chemicals and polymers, ElogioAM is bringing the world’s first fifth-generation 3D filament, Facilan, which enables applications previously unobtainable with other 3D printing materials.

ElogioAM will be based in the Netherlands, Haarlem. ElogioAM aims to enable true deployment of additive manufacturing capability for medical, fashion, orthotics, advanced prototyping, modelling, demanding industry and consumer markets.

The company has a unique product range in the 3D printing filament family Facilan, created from the ground up and always with safety and fit for purpose in mind to serve the requirements of 3D printing users.

Facilan filaments have been designed to outperform. Facilan C8 3D printed parts, for example, have higher impact and tensile strength than ABS filaments while being based on compostable raw materials. Facilan C8 parts have a soft touch feel and are smoother than PLA and ABS parts. More developments are ongoing together with orthotics and insoles researchers to develop new 3D printing solutions.

Facilan PCL 100 is a pure polycaprolactone filament that is being used by researchers in artificial muscles, drug-loaded implants, scaffolds and smart materials. The Facilan portfolio of materials aims to be the most innovative collection of 3D printing filaments in the market. We aim to make materials that make the future of true manufacturing with 3D printing possible.

“I am incredibly proud to announce that Perstorp and 3D4Makers join forces to take next step in unlocking potentials for unmet needs in high-quality filaments for additive manufacturing / 3D printing. Following the successful cooperation Perstorp and 3D4Makers have developed, and the introduction of the Facilan range of high-quality 3D printing filaments, I see the formation of this JV, ElogioAM as the next natural step to further accelerate this potential,” said Marie Gronborg, executive vice president innovation, Perstorp.

“We’re very proud to be working together with Perstorp, their speciality chemicals, additives and polymer knowledge has really made materials in 3D printing possible that we could only dream of. Better tolerance materials and higher performance parts is what really will put 3D printing on the factory floor and in the most cutting-edge applications. Furthermore, Perstorp is quick, flexible and innovative; giving us a partner cable of innovating continuously in the dynamic 3D Printing market. ElogioAM is a very exciting development for us and we would like to thank our partners for their trust,” added Jan-Peter Wille, 3D4Makers co-founder.
