INDUSTRY-LEADING MATERIALS FOR MASS PRODUCTION
So, what do you want to print? All 3D printing starts with material selection — and ETEC has more choices, higher performance choices, and the option to go open-materials.
Through in-house developed proprietary materials and strategic partnerships with leading materials suppliers, ETEC’s library of 190+ materials offers the broadest choice across hard plastics, high-temperature plastics, elastomers, and castable resins. We also offer open-material option that gives you the ultimate freedom.
So whether you need resins that rival leading thermoplastic materials; resilient elastomers featuring Shore A30 to A90 and elongation-at-break exceeding 400%; or a comprehensive library of FDA Class II biocompatible materials – ETEC has you and your applications covered.
An Open Materials Approach
An open-source 3D printer allows a user to easily process any material they believe to be compatible with the printer — even if that material is not qualified or certified as being compatible by the hardware company such as ETEC.
ETEC’s open-material option gives you the freedom to explore new materials, enables dual material systems so you can plan for low-risk redundancy, or develop your own materials! With tons of options, an ETEC printer offers incredible flexibility.
