Having gained patents across the globe protecting a range of PLA formulations with improved flow and impact properties, they are looking for innovative collaborative partners to use this technology in their own filament and formulations.
“We’d like to make it clear that we are a technology company, not a manufacturer. We are bioplastics specialists with patented technology, We’re a small and innovative team looking to partner with like-minded organisations that can take the technology into the market. This could be a compounder who can use our additive technology in their own formulations for 3D filament, a manufacturer looking to work with us to develop new grades of filament or even 3D printer OEM’s or filament suppliers who can use the improved properties of Floreon’s enhanced PLA filament to give them an additional and exciting new product line.” emphasised Shaun Chatterton, CEO
The company’s patent covers ternary (three part) mixtures of PLA with other bioplastics such as polycaprolactone and polybutylene succinate.
“By combining these further two plastics with PLA we can significantly increase the impact toughness of PLA without reducing significantly the tensile strength of the material” said Andrew Gill, Floreon’s Technical Director.
Their 3D filament has been well received in the market with excellent feedback from commercial and consumer users.
Scott Knowles, Director & Co-Founder, Object Form Ltd says
“As a 3D printing specialist we use many plastic filaments in order to satisfy our clients requirements. Being a specialist means we have-to use top quality materials we can rely on. Floreon3D is one such material, an excellent plastic to be used within the 3D printing industry that we recommend.”
