Tethon 3D, a Nebraska-based 3D printing materials manufacturer, has expanded its range of proprietary ceramic powders with the Tethonite high alumina powder.
This ceramic powder, designed for use in binder jetting additive manufacturing systems, claims an increased resistance to corrosion, wear, and thermal stress.
Powder - Material - Development - Area - Focus
“Ceramic powder material development continues to be an area of focus for us,” said CEO Karen Linder, CEO of Tehon 3D. “We have over a decade of R&D experience and expertise with ceramic powders in binder jetting additive manufacturing applications.”
Commencing commercial operations in 2014, Tethon 3D initially released the Tethonite stoneware powder, for use in powder/binder jet 3D printers. Following this, Tethon 3D broadened the Tethonite range with three other formulations: earthenware (terracotta), porcelain and now, high alumina.
% - Alumina - Crystalline - Substance - Tethonite
Composed of over 96% of alumina, a white or nearly colourless crystalline substance, the Tethonite high alumina powder can be used by for unique technical industrial applications, such as oil and gas processing and high voltage bushings – an insulated device used to conduct electricity through grounded barriers.
Additionally, with a heat sintering tolerance of up to 2000°C (3632°F), Tethonite high alumina powder is suitable for use within specialty crucibles, a ceramic or metal container where metals are melted under high temperatures.
