Spanish research center seeks filament for 3D printing that allow subsequent metallization processes by electrolysis, it is interested in manufacturing agreement.

Spanish research centre specialised in plastics and composite materials, has specific competencies for the development of tailored polymer materials for 3D printing. They are looking for filament using fused deposition modelling technology (FDM) for the manufacture of plastic parts with properties that allow subsequent metallization processes by electrolysis (cooper plated + silver plated). A manufacturing agreement is sought.

Partnership(s) sought
  • Manufacturing agreement
Descripción completa

The Spanish research and development center is a non-profit foundation, created in 1992, constituted by 40 companies and managed in a private and independent way whose purpose is to contribute to the increase of the competitiveness of the organizations being the solid, agile and adequate support for the technological development.

It has worked in numerous occasions in international cooperation with other research centres, companies or universities.

The center, is specialised in plastics and composite materials, has expertise in designing and consulting to 3D additive manufacturers industry and research willing to develop tailored polymer materials for 3D using fused deposition modelling technology (FDM) printing.

The research department is interested in the manufacture and prototyping of 3D printed (FDM) plastic parts that can be subjected to subsequent metallizing processes of electrolytic plating (copper + silver).

In case of not having filament developed with these requirements, the centre is also interested in pelletized polymers with these characteristics for use in extrusion processes for the manufacture of filament.

The R&D centre is interested in the acquisition of this specific materials and to know the new possibilities, results of researches by a manufacturing agreement.

Socio buscado:

- Type of partner sought: Plastic parts manufactured with the filament searched in this request can be subjected to subsequent metallizing processes. For this reason filaments searched must accomplish the following requirements.

- It is important that the filament has thermal properties similar to the acrylonitrile butadiene styrene with polycarbonate (ABS + PC) blend.
- It has to present good adhesion properties.

The R&D centre is interested in the acquisition of this specific materials and to know the new possibilities, results of researches by a manufacturing agreement.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The center is looking for a company where they can buy plastic materials whose technical description is specified in the previous sections.

Development Stage:
