Graphmatech & Add North launch highly conductive 3D printable material with Aros Graphene®

| PRESS RELEASE -
SHARE

Graphmatech and Add North 3D are very proud to announce the release of their first jointly developed product – the Koltron G1. The product is the result of over 12 months of intensive research and development work from both companies, with a fantastic outcome – a fully conductive engineering grade polymer for additive manufacturing with impressive levels of functionality.

The Koltron G1 is a highly electrically and thermally conductive filament, resistant to a range of chemicals, UV light and high continuous working temperatures, with the highest flame-retardant rating. The versatility is unmatched in polymer additive manufacturing.

The application areas for the Koltron G1 are vast, ranging from EMI and RFI shielding (against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference) to capacitive sensors, wearable and printed electronics as well as the cooling of electronics. The incorporation of Graphmatech’s unique Aros Graphene® also gives the printed parts excellent self-lubricating properties.

A great deal of the development focused on making the material processable in any fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer. This has now been achieved, making the newly launched Koltron G1 versatile not only through its broad potential applications, but also in its widespread accessibility.

”This material is unique in the way it combines excellent mechanical and resistance properties with high electrical and thermal conductivity. For a 3D filament producer, to bring all these great features into a printed part is extremely exciting” says Add North 3D CEO Nils Åsheim.

The Koltron G1 is available now through the Add North webshop, with availability through resellers in the largest markets expected to follow in the near future.
