NatureWorks has introduced Ingeo™ 3D870, a new cost-effective grade for 3D filament manufacturers looking for innovative means of expanding sales into the industrial prototyping and additive manufacturing market. Feedback from filament manufacturers that have trialed the product commend the ease of processing Ingeo 3D870 and printer manufacturers praise its printability; both have uniformly said there are no materials available today that provide this combination of superior filament processing, printability, and printed part performance characteristics.
With its 3D series of Ingeo grades, NatureWorks is the leading supplier of PLA to the 3D filament manufacturing industry. Every filament carrying NatureWorks’ Ingeo brand name has passed a defined set of tests to assure the quality of the product. Quality filament ensures reliable printing and predictable performance. NatureWorks developed Ingeo 3D870 to meet the growing demand by industrial companies for a material that combines the properties of ABS and the printability of Ingeo PLA.
