Essentium Introduces 3D Printing Bed Adhesives

Essentium, Inc. has launched all-in-one 3D printing adhesives specifically tailored for Essentium’s portfolio of materials and the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSETM) 3D Printing Platform, providing manufacturers with an adhesion solution for industrial-scale 3D printing.

Essentium worked with Magigoo, a provider of 3D printing bed adhesive solutions, to improve the bed-adhesion of different engineering-grade polymers.

The Essentium 3D Printing Bed Adhesives—powered by Magigoo—are designed to work with heated beds. The adhesives stick the print firmly in place while printing and then ‘magically’ release the print once the bed has cooled. This allows for printing without needing to use rafts, tapes, harsh chemicals or other solutions. Essentium is introducing a large sized—120ml—adhesive to meet the demand for industrial 3D printed parts.

“Continuous innovation across the entire 3D printing ecosystem is central to the revolutionary shift to large-scale additive manufacturing and Essentium is committed to providing a powerful platform to help manufacturers drive significant performance improvements,” says Brandon Sweeney, Ph.D., head of R&D for Materials and co-founder, Essentium. “For customers, these new adhesives enable high-quality prints every time while also being solvent-free and environmentally friendly.”

Essentium has developed four bed adhesives available immediately:

  • Standard—Designed to work with a variety of 3D printing filaments
  • Nylon Filaments—Designed to work exclusively with Polyamide filaments
  • Flexible Filaments—Designed to work exclusively with TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) filaments
  • High-Temperature Filaments—Designed to work at high printing temperatures
