Solvay sponsors Additive Manufacturing Cup

Solvay has called on university students to participate in a contest for creating complex 3D shapes using the company’s high-performance KetaSpire PEEK polymer filaments. © SolvaySolvay, a leading supplier of specialty polymers, has invited university students from around the world to compete in its Additive Manufacturing Cup by 3D printing complex shapes using the company’s KetaSpire polyetheretherketone (PEEK) filaments. Registration closed at the end of October with over thirty teams from thirteen countries enrolled.

“3D printing is a remarkable manufacturing technology that is developing quickly,” said Brian Alexander, Additive Manufacturing Manager for Solvay’s Specialty Polymers global business unit.
