Sabic has developed a fused deposition modeling filament for 3D printing. The new product is suitable for aerospace, consumer and automotive applications and forms part of the company’s range of additive manufacturing (AM) materials, which includes six filaments designed for use with Stratasys Fortus printers, and a range of reinforced compounds for large format AM, both of which were introduced earlier in 2017.

These technologies are based on the company's polycarbonate (PC), polyetherimide (PEI), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and polyphenylene ether (PPE) engineering resins.
