Major OEMs Help Spur Surging Global Demand for 3D Printers

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 | Permalink

If 2013 was a good year for 3D printing (aka additive manufacturing), the future promises to be even brighter for this rapidly advancing technology. According to a new report from the Freedonia Group, world demand for 3D printers and related materials and software is projected to rise 21% per year to $5 billion in 2017.  While professional uses such as prototyping will continue to account for the majority of demand, the more rapid growth will be seen in production and consumer applications.

New antimicrobial tech wins patents, claims lower cost than silver counterparts

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013 | Permalink

A new antimicrobial technology that utilizes long-chain polymers has been granted 41 claims by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Quick-Med Technologies’ NIMBUS antimicrobial products use a Poly-Electrolyte Complex (PEC) to stabilize the active antimicrobial agent that is a positively-charged (cationic) polymer, allowing it to bond to a range of substrates. The PEC will be protected through the patent, the application for which was entitled: “Polyelectrolyte Complex For Imparting Antimicrobial Properties To A Substrate.” Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites Issue Date:  PT – September 2013 Keywords:  Quick-Med NIMBUS antimicrobial read more

New long-fiber vinyl composites are making headway

Thursday, September 12th, 2013 | Permalink

  Solvay is looking for North American manufacturing partners for an innovative vinyl composite technology introduced earlier this year in Europe after six years of research and development. The two products in the line are described by Solvay as the first long and continuous fiber vinyl composites.  One, called FibroVin, developed with Fibroline (Lyon, France), is made from long glass fibers impregnated with PVC powder. It’s said  to provide fire resistance, stiffness and high impact resistance. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites read more
