Kimya is expanding its “Remake” range of recycled 3D filaments

Kimya is expanding its “Remake” range of recycled 3D filaments

News 02.07.2023

KIMYA is continuing the development of its “Remake” range with a new 3D filament: the recycled ABS-R filament, made from 100% post-consumer recycled material from selective collection. A first for KIMYA, which initially focused on post-industrial plastics.

Properties of the Kimya recycled ABS-R

KIMYA recycled ABS-R (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a thermoplastic polymer offering high impact resistance and is relatively rigid and lightweight. Operational on all 3D printers on the market and perfectly adapted for outer casing applications, ABS is popular among professionals in sectors such as domestic appliances, telephony, IT equipment and toys.

Benoît Stoeux, Managing Director of KIMYA, commented: “With this filament; we are offering our ABS material users a new; greener alternative to satisfy their standard printing needs. For applications requiring high-impact resistance and a food contact certification, we are offering the Kimya ABS -S”.

Post-consumer vs. Post-industrial

Itself an industrial company, KIMYA is naturally oriented towards using post-industrial plastics from production scraps and waste to launch its range of recycled filaments “Remake”, initiated as part of the ORPLAST program. Eager to always go further in its circular economy approach, KIMYA took an interest in post-consumer plastics which are highly more complex than the post-industrial products in closed circuit.

This is how the Kimya recycled ABS-R was born: the first filament of the “Remake” range produced from 100% post-consumer recycled material. In other words: the Kimya recycled ABS is entirely made of plastics obtained from recycled household waste and electronic products (e.g., Phone casings).

As for the rest of the filaments from its “Remake” range, KIMYA collaborates with a French supplier to source the recycled plastic material, and thus ensuring the uniformity and traceability throughout the production chain.
