Braskem acquires taulman3D

Braskem, a Brazilian petrochemical company, announced the acquisition of taulman3D, a leading supplier of 3D filaments made of nylon, recycled PETG and PET to professionals in the aerospace, automotive, healthcare, industry, government and higher education industries. Braskem says the acquisition of the US manufacturer will be the “perfect complement” to its existing portfolio of filaments, pellets and powders designed specifically for 3D printing applications.

Jason Vagnozzi, Global Commercial Director of Additive Manufacturing at Braskem, said, “Braskem’s acquisition of taulman3D gives us a portfolio of high-quality 3D filaments and a globally diversified customer list and highly complementary product portfolio. Given the projected growth of the 3D printing industry from the current $15 billion to $78 billion by 2030, at an estimated 20% CAGR, we see greater opportunities to meet this rapidly growing demand. Today’s acquisition doubles Braskem’s share of the additive manufacturing market and further accelerates our growth strategy.”

Braskem offers material solutions in the field of 3D printing technology, including filament fabrication (FFF), powdered plastics for selective laser sintering (SLS) and high-speed extrusion directly from pellets.

Zach Lichaa, president of taulman3D, added, “We are extremely proud to have built one of the world’s leading 3D printing companies over the last decade, with private and public sector clients in dozens of countries. Braskem’s significant R&D resources and their world-class manufacturing teams will enable us to serve our customers with even greater focus and product innovation as additive manufacturing becomes increasingly embedded in global supply chains.”

In the second half of 2022, Braskem partnered with Essentium to unlock sustainable, large-scale additive manufacturing using polyolefin materials.
