Impossible Objects (Northbrook, Ill., U.S.) has announced a joint development agreement with Owens Corning (Toledo, Ohio, U.S.) to develop new materials for Impossible Objects’ composite-based additive manufacturing (CBAM) process.
The collaboration with Owens Corning, a global building and industrial materials leader, will reportedly enable the production of stronger parts at costs lower than other 3D printing processes. According to Impossible Objects, fiberglass composites boast key advantages for 3D-printed parts, including substantially greater strength-to-weight ratios compared to aluminum, lower costs, superior high-temperature performance and greater chemical resistance. Lowering material cost is important for broadening adoption of additive manufacturing (AM); research has shown that costs of materials used in 3D printing can be higher than traditional manufacturing materials by up to a factor of eight on a per-weight basis.
