A Cooperation Framework Agreement has been signed between Sinopec Baling Petrochemical Company and Farsoon High-Technology Co., Ltd., to develop and create a number of new innovative 3D printing materials, including powder elastomer materials and SLA epoxy resin, as well as new 3D printing devices. Farsoon, a total solution supplier of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Melting (SLM), will focus on the development of new 3D printing devices, while Sinopec Baling Petrochemical will be in charge of the development of the new 3D printing materials. Together, the companies are hoping to advance additive manufacturing technologies as well as promote innovation in the field.
Sinopec will be developing a new thermoplastic elastomer using synthetic rubbers, epoxy resin, and a variety of nylon materials. Research and development will be initiated on a new UV curable photosensitive resin to be used in 3D printing, as well as a nylon developed for use in the automotive industry, a polyamide elastomer, epoxy curing agents, and an epoxy carbon fiber composite.
Farsoon High-Technology will work on developing new selective laser sintering 3D printers as well as services to process additive manufacturing materials.
