Intercept Technology™ Anti-Corrosion Goes 3D Printable

Intercept Technology®, long term stable, oil free corrosion protection has developed a new 3D printable ribbon. Other traditional volatile based anti-corrosion technologies use volatiles and oils which cannot be put into a 3D spool, however Intercept is a copper based polymer which is solid state, volatile free and stable at the temperatures required to make the 3D spools and stable at the 3D printing temperatures. Currently spools are available for corrosion protection in a PLA base and corrosion with permanent ESD protection in an ABS base polymer.

The development is another extension of the versatility of the Intercept Technology™ in industrial and consumer markets by Engineered Materials, Inc. (EMI), an Illinois based corporation with offices and technicians around the world. The development allows for printing of complex parts and shapes for on board electronics, aviation, aerospace and other applications that require corrosion and/or ESD protection for key components. The non-volatile nature of our anti-corrosion 3D print allows this to be put into high end, extremely clean applications.

Intercept products are available worldwide, with production domestically and in Europe. The development was done at the request of two diverse industries, one in the consumer electronics market, the other in high end aerospace. The common link was the need for long term, stable, non-volatile, clean corrosion protection on board with their product. This development compliments Intercept Technology injection molding and thermoformed parts and trays, but takes it to a new, easy to manage, easy to produce format. Intercept Technology™, simply better protection.
