(ROCK HILL, South Carolina) – 3D Systems Corporation announces the immediate availability of DuraForm HST Plastic, a strong, temperature-resistant rapid manufacturing material for use in its Sinterstation, HiQ, SLS Systems.
Incorporating advanced fiber technology, DuraForm HST (High Strength and Temperature) Plastic is an engineered material for applications that require improved strength, higher stiffness and elevated temperature resistance. With more cost-effective pricing than carbon-fiber filled materials and better recyclability than other competitive materials, DuraForm HST is a cost-effective solution for both engineering applications and general purpose use.
DuraForm HST offers good accuracy and repeatability in all X-Y-Z directions. This white-colored material is easy-to-process, resulting in parts with excellent surface detail. Processors performing secondary sanding or machining operations can expect to experience nice results with minimal effort.
As this non-conductive material is RF transparent, aerospace and motor sports customers concerned about faraday cage effects have embraced this material. Specific applications include UAV components, housings and enclosures and low- to mid-volume manufactured parts.
DuraForm HST Plastic for the Sinterstation, HiQ, SLS System is the latest example of our focused drive and determination to bring Additive Manufacturing technology onto the manufacturing floor, said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems president and chief executive officer. We expect that this new, tough, strong and temperature resistant Rapid Manufacturing material will help accelerate the adoption of our expertly integrated, cost-effective and flexible Rapid Manufacturing solutions.
