German plastics producer Covestro (Leverkusen; www.covestro.com) has announced the introduction of a glass-fibre filled, recycled PET for 3D pellet printing, a material developed by the additive manufacturing business recently acquired from Dutch chemical company DSM (see Plasteurope.com of 06.10.2020).

Made from post-consumer PET waste, “Arnite AM2001 GF (G) rPET” is said to perfectly fit Covestro’s vision for a circular economy. The resin maker noted that the rPET has been optimised for 3D pellet printing. This technology, also known as fused granulate fabrication (FGF), allows for fast and economically viable additive manufacturing of large-size parts.

The company said that the mechanical properties and broad processing window of the material makes it suitable for structural applications across a variety of industries, including pedestrian bridges, tiles for cyclist or pedestrian tunnels, architectural applications like cladding or partition walls, indoor and outdoor furniture, small boats, packaging crates and tooling.
