Graphene 3D Lab is one of the more interesting companies when it comes to the materials space within the 3D printing market. Not only are they working on creating filament and materials for 3D printing which incorporate the ‘miracle material’ graphene, but they have plans to use such materials to 3D print working batteries. Although we may be years off from seeing 3D printed batteries in our cars, smartphones, and watches, graphene-infused 3D printing materials are already becoming available.
Today another exciting tidbit of news is coming from Graphene 3D Lab. They have announced a memorandum of understanding, laying the basic foundation for collaboration between themselves and taulman3D on the research and development of new 3D printing materials.
Missouri-based taulman3D is known for their wide range of high quality 3D printer filaments and powders, particularly made from nylon. They are one of the more trusted brands within market, and have the experience and know-how to bring forth new innovative materials to market.
Graphene 3D’s chief executive officer, Daniel Stolyarov, stated, “Taulman is a leading supplier of nylon materials, with a high level of experience in both distribution and development of proprietary filaments. I see a high potential for synergy between our two companies and look forward to continuing this collaboration in both business and research.”
Under the agreement, both taulman3D and Graphene 3D Lab will collaborate on the development of a graphene-infused nylon material for use within 3D printers. Additionally, Graphene 3D Lab will be granted exclusive distribution rights for taulman3D’s Nylon 680 material, set to begin selling in the first quarter of next year, for a two year period, in all of North America.
Thomas Martzall, chief executive officer at taulman3D, added: “There is a growing need for high-strength 3-D printer materials with functional properties. By partnering with Graphene 3D, a company with a sound foundation in materials R&D and commercialization, we open the path to bring such materials to market.”
Combining the incredible properties of graphene with the strength, flexibility ,and luster seen within taulman’3Ds nylon materials could certainly be the recipe for groundbreaking new materials within both the consumer and manufacturing areas of the 3D printing market. As we have mentioned so many times in the past, innovation within the materials market is just as important as the innovation we are seeing within the actual printers themselves. Let’s hear your thoughts on this new collaboration in the Nylon & Graphene 3D Printer Materials forum thread on 3DPB.com.
