Welcome to Covestro Additive Manufacturing

Covestro introduces 3D printing material made from recycled PET

Materials manufacturer Covestro introduces its first material developed by the additive manufacturing business recently acquired from DSM: a glass-fiber filled recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) for 3D pellet printing. Made from post-consumer PET waste, Arnite® AM2001 GF (G) rPET perfectly fits Covestro’s vision for a Circular Economy and illustrates how complementary the two organizations are in their approach to adding more value to additive manufacturing and industrial production overall.

 Arnilene® AM6002 (P) is a Polypropylene powder optimized for selective laser sintering 3D printing  large batches of engineering grade, tough, complex applications across multiple industries. Food contact approved.

Somos® QuickGen 500 is a fast-printing DLP/LCD material with unique flexibility and a print speed 2x faster than similar materials. It offers accurate printing for general and functional prototypes.

Unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing by bringing you more high-performing materials

Covestro Additive Manufacturing – now including the former DSM Additive Manufacturing business - wants to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing by expanding the number of materials for high-performing features in finished parts. By working together with other pioneers across industry sectors and value chains, we want to enable industrial additive manufacturing, as one of the roads to bring the Circular Economy forward. Our solutions encompass materials for all major technologies in the field of 3D printing, as well as application support to manufacturers in adopting additive manufacturing to change the way they design and manufacture products.
