3D printing is a world of opportunity for high definition, waste-free production. Plastic is often combined with glass fibre for extra stability and strength. But these composites lack versatility and are non-recyclable. UPM Formi 3D uses wood-based cellulose fibres for extra functionality. It’s well-suited moulds look great in your living room and even thrives in the great outdoors. With significant time and cost savings using natural materials UPM Formi 3D provides new freedoms of design and added reusability in 3D printing applications for a sustainable future.
Versatile and sustainable material for 3D printing
Main benefits of UPM Formi 3D
- wood-based cellulose fibres for extra functionality
- Easy to use “drop in” material
- High-definition production
- Wood like post processing properties
- Wood fibres from PEFC-certified (PEFC/02-31-173), sustainably managed forest
Certified and safe
UPM Formi 3D is a user-friendly material for home, office and education environment.
UPM Formi is available with PEFC certification. End products manufactured from certified raw materials can also obtain these certifications. The certification can be used for the marketing purposes and it is a proof of the importance of ecological values for the brand.
UPM Formi 3D granules are easy to process in extrusion due to good melt strength and dimensional stability. UPM Formi 3D can be blended with native PLA plastic.
Fused Filament Fabrication
UPM Formi 3D creates added value and unique properties for PLA based 3D filaments via fine cellulose fibres.
