Impossible Objects and TIGER collaborate

TIGER, the global innovator in 3D material solutions and manufacturer of TIGER high-quality surface solutions, will collaborate with the US 3D printer producer Impossible Objects to develop revolutionary thermoset based 3D printed composites.

This cooperation will widely expand the use of additive manufacturing in several industries like aerospace or automotive.Impossible Objects, headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, has developed an innovative 3D printing technology that can print composite objects using layers of high-performance, lightweight materials like carbon fiber. This composite-based additive manufacturing process, “CBAM,” is substantially faster than any existing process and can produce functional parts with significantly better mechanical properties than existing polymer-based methods. For the CBAM process, a wide range of thermoplastic polymer binders is used. So far, no Thermoset Materials have been used or offered in the market. Thermoset materials have the advantage over thermoplastics, to always remain in a permanent solid-state, demonstrating outstanding isotropic performance, dimension stability, enhanced mechanical properties, and adjustable flame retardant behavior. An essential further advantage of thermoset composites is their low density, which makes the components substantially lighter than conventional construction materials like metal alloys. Therefore, this new 3D printed thermoset based composite will be instrumental to fulfill the future needs for automotive and aircraft construction.
