Flame retardant 3D printing material from Markforged

Flame retardant 3D printing material from Markforged

Markforged announced the availability of Onyx FR, a new, V-0 rated flame-retardant material designed for industries such as aerospace, automotive, and defense. Traditional 3D printed plastics will burn if they catch fire, but this new material is self-extinguishing, so it will actually stop itself from burning.

IDTechEx Research offers insights into 3D Printing industry innovation

IDTechEx Research offers insights into 3D Printing industry innovation

The sheer volume of new 3D printing announcements gives the impression that the technology is evolving on a weekly, if not daily basis. Certainly if 2018 set the bar, 2019 has not disappointed to date, with the number of new printer processes commercialized indicating that 3D printing is continuing to gain momentum. Forthcoming reports from IDTechEx Research help to navigate this rapidly moving domain, with three new reports covering the key areas of technological innovation.
