Plastic additives technology has made some massive advancements over the past 10 years, but with all of the different options available how can someone choose which path to go down? The term “additives” is a loose one, so we first need to clarify what we’re referring to. The basic definition is something that is added to a base polymer for performance enhancements, typically with a low percentage of the overall resin make up.
We’ve come a long way in rapid prototyping from the brittle single material choice SLA processes 10 years ago, but how much importance are you putting on your suppliers’ capabilities? With the continuous technology advancements in additive manufacturing & prototyping, it should now be considered a “standard” that your injection molding supply chain has these capabilities…At least we seem to think so and our customers would agree.
