GreenTEC was launched by Extrudr in 2016 in an initiative for ecologically harmless filaments. The aim was to develop a biodegradable high-performance filament that can withstand mechanical influences similar to oil plastics, e.g. ABS. It should be usable for technical applications without any problems but should be made from biologically safe substances. In addition, the odor loads should also be reduced to allow users to have a pleasant printing experience.
After the success of the normal GreenTEC, the technical features should improve even more. Therefore, GreenTEC Pro was developed and released in 2018, which is intended to serve the technical applications in particular. The impressive technical properties exceed the oil-based materials in many ways.
Extrudr GreenTEC Prois made of a high-performance bioplastic. Due to the organic origin of this material, GreenTEC Pro is a perfect alternative to ordinary oil-based plastics.
GreenTEC is very easy to print, similar to PLA or PETG. No special prior knowledge is required, which is why even beginners can cope well with the material. The countless advantages over the more difficult to print ABS and the organic origin of the material enables it to be used in almost every project.
GreenTEC Pro is a very heat-resistant material with better properties than conventional oil plastics. Due to the slight flexibility of the material, it is well equipped against external impacts. The material can also withstand mechanical and thermal loads.
GreenTEC Pro is well able to keep up with conventional oil plastics due to its high thermal and mechanical load capacity and is known as an all-round material due to its simple processing.
Thanks to its excellent mechanical properties, the GreenTEC Pro can be used in a wide range of areas. Even in contact with food, the material is safe due to FDA certification. At the same time, it can shine in industrial applications.
In contrast to the normal GreenTEC, GreenTEC Pro has even better mechanical properties and is therefore suitable for almost all applications.
