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.

The growing adoption of home 3D printers in the North American and European regions is one of the major factors augmenting the demand for 3D printing elastomers.
By material, TPE is estimated to be the leading segment of 3D printing elastomers market from 2021 to 2026, in terms of value and volume.
Based on material, the 3D printing elastomers market has been segmented into thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) & styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS), and others. The TPE segment is further sub-segmented into thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV). Under the TPE segment, TPU dominated the 3D printing elastomers market in 2020 and is estimated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The high demand for TPU materials is due to their superior properties when compared to TPV and other thermoplastic elastomers. They offer higher strength, flexibility, and durability than TPV.
