VELOX, a distributor of Axalta Polymer Powders' Coathylene range, is expanding its plastics product portfolio to include Coathylene SB0426-R.
The Coathylene range is generally used as an anti-shrinkage agent for hot curing in the composites market. This polystyrene powder grade has been developed specifically for use in Laser sintering.
Laser sintering is one of several additive-manufacturing technologies. This promising manufacturing system uses lasers to fuse powdered material, building up shapes layer by layer. The latest development in laser sintering technology has lead to increased production efficiency and allows companies to produce not only prototypes or complex parts but also small series.
Offering plastics powders engineered for laser sintering technology now allows VELOX to support its customers’ projects from start to finish.
