Speak to our polymers team who are happy to help you with any questions about bespoke formulations, colour variations and much more. 

Whether you’re looking to produce 3D printing filaments or buy them for yourself, we can give you all the advice you need to help PMMA make your project a success. You can contact us here.

Our 3Diakon® PMMA filaments have been developed in collaboration with Mitsubishi Chemical Performance Polymers, so you know you’re getting the best global advice and expertise when you get in touch.  

Plus, if you’re working with Ultimaker – the world’s leading provider of desktop 3D printing equipment – Diakon® PMMA is registered and fully compatible with their machines. 

Freeform injection moulding

Diakon® PMMA is fully approved and compatible with this exciting 3D printing technology, unlocking so many new possibilities for you.  

Freeform injection moulded PMMA parts can give you incredible levels of intricate detail which traditional injection moulding can’t match. It’s also ideally suited to small-scale production requirements and gives you great freedom for prototyping.  

Perhaps the most impressive thing this makes possible is micro injection moulding – meaning you can use PMMA to achieve microscopic detail for the most specialist needs. 

We’ve collaborated with Danish 3D printing pioneer, AddiFab, on freeform injection moulding.

BREXIT STATEMENT

As the date of UK’s withdrawal from the EU is rapidly approaching there still remains real uncertainty as to the definitive outcome and shape of the Brexit deal (until the 31st of December 2020)

We, as Lucite International Alpha B.V. and in particular our Brexit team have been preparing ourselves for the worst-case scenario of a “No-deal Brexit” with a no free trade agreement between the EU and UK from the 31st of December 2020.

We have been focussing on key areas including but not limited to changes in tariffs, regulatory frameworks, customs borders, and logistics & supply chain for raw materials and finished product. This approach enables us to anticipate and adapt ourselves to any potential Brexit-deal.  

Despite the political uncertainty, we can promise that we are confident we have prepared  thoroughly so that the effects of a “No-Deal Brexit” scenario should be minimal, and we intent to maintain our high level of customer service and support that you have come to expect from Lucite International Alpha B.V.
