St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
VisiPak, a division of Sinclair & Rush, Inc., has been selected by TAULMAN3D, LLC as the sole manufacturer of a new industrial 3D-printing material called T-Glase. Pronounced “tee-glass,” the new and unique industrial strength material was developed to support the vast majority of 3D printers available today.
VisiPak, a leader in high-tech extrusion proficiencies, worked closely with Taulman3D to develop the T-Glase line. With extensive extruding capabilities and superior engineering, material testing and production expertise, VisiPak and Taulman3D worked quickly to develop a unique material solution for the 3D printing market.
“3D printing is an exciting market with amazing potential that is already being realized. VisiPak is honored to be a part of the new frontiers this market has to offer,” said Jeff Barket, Director of Sales & Marketing for VisiPak and the Sinclair & Rush Companies.
T-Glase was developed primarily for low temperature 3D printers or users of PLA (Polylactic acid or polylactide is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources). While maintaining the characteristic high strength of the materials for which Taulman3D is recognized, T-Glase is a filament that does not suffer warpage to the same degree as high temperature materials. T-Glase, short for tough glass (the name adopted by initial testing operators) is designed for 3D printing at temperatures ranging from 207°C up to 235°C, optimally 212°C to 224°C.
