Arevo Labs, a Silicon Valley startup, announced today the availability of technology and materials to create Ultra Strong High Performance Polymer parts using a 3D printing process. Supported materials include High Performance Polymers such as KetaSpire® PEEK, AvaSpire® PAEK, Radel® PPSU and PrimoSpire® SRP. Arevo’s offering consists of Proprietary Carbon Fiber and Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Reinforced High Performance Materials, printing technology compatible with commercially available filament fusion 3D Printers and specialized software algorithms to create 3D objects with deterministic mechanical properties.

3D Printing with PEEK and other advanced reinforced polymers has been technically challenging until now. Arevo Labs’ team has solved this problem by optimizing polymer formulations along with innovative extrusion technology to make them suitable for additive manufacturing. Arevo Labs patent pending 3D Printing technology combines the benefits of printing complex geometries with reinforced materials that have excellent resistance to high temperatures and chemicals. The 3D printed parts optimized for mechanical properties using Arevo’s advanced algorithms result in lighter stronger parts with unmatched mechanical properties.

“We’re pleased that several of Solvay’s high performance polymers are being used in this exciting new technology.”

“We are excited about enabling 3D printed Ultra Strong Polymer Parts for the first time,” said Hemant Bheda, founder of Arevo Labs. “OEMs in the aerospace and defense industries, in particular, can now use lighter and stronger production parts not possible to manufacture using conventional methods until now.”

“Arevo Labs is providing the aerospace and defense industries with a new level of performance with 3D Printed Ultra Strong Parts using Solvay Polymers,” said Jens Hoeltje, Director of Strategy & Marketing for Solvay Specialty Polymers. “We’re pleased that several of Solvay’s high performance polymers are being used in this exciting new technology.” Image
