US polyolefin giant LyondellBasell (LYB, Houston, Texas; www.lyondellBasell.com) launched its new “Beon3D” family of polypropylene compounds for additive manufacturing applications. PP compounds in 3D printing are still emerging, according to industry experts.

Beon3D offers high hydrophobicity, acoustical and optical performance. It also exhibits good mechanical properties, scratch and chemical and heat resistance. The material is lightweight, has easy processability and provides high dimensional stability and surface quality, allowing for the design and production of complex, high-quality 3D-printed parts, LYB says.

Initial targeted markets include industrial and consumer goods, building and construction, and transportation.
