Comments Email

MIDLAND, Mich.—Dow Chemical Co. has released a new, high-performance 3D printing build material in the EVOLV3D platform of 3D printing solutions.

The new EVOLV3D Olefin Block Copolymer printing filament enables the production of lightweight, durable parts and is remoldable for an extended lifespan, according to Dow.

The firm added that it is committed to valuing nature and advancing the circular economy by taking into account a product's complete lifecycle during the development process as part of its 2025 sustainability goals.

To take its dedication to sustainability a step further, Dow said intends to develop a first-of-its-kind recycling program for end-users who use the EVOLV3D OBC material. By recycling this product via Dow, end-users can gain access to a future (to be developed) product line of 3D printing materials made of recycled materials.
