3D Printing

3D Printing

As one of the world’s largest producers of polyolefins, it made sense for Braskem to enter the world of 3D Printing. Braskem offers solutions for many of the primary 3D printing technologies such as Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and High-speed Pellet Extrusion.

Through our decades of expertise in materials science and product development, our state-of-the art 3D printing labs, and our strategic partnerships with industry leaders, we are committed to delivering new and innovative products to the market.

Regardless if you are a start-up, university, equipment manufacturer, converter, compounder, or brand owner, reach out to us today to learn more about our product development pipeline and how we can collaborate with you on your next 3D printed solution.


Braskem filaments are designed for the end user. They are intended for the production of cutting and drilling jigs, as well as accessory performance improvements, prototyping and testing to reduce weight and optimize geometries, spare parts and the design of containers with excellent tightness, lighter weight and with living hinges.

In a strategic partnership with Advanced Laser Materials (ALM), Braskem developed its first line of powders for selective laser sintering (SLS). Through this collaboration, Braskem can offer solutions that can be employed by a wide variety of market segments, such as automobile, aerospace, packaging, and consumer products.

Braskem 3D printing pellets are specially developed for direct use in processes with granulated raw materials. Our unique formulations improve printability and overall flow to ensure the highest quality prints.



Since the 1960s, plastic has become part of the automotive industry in a significant way, and during recent decades has yielded new benefits, providing for a huge reduction in weight, less fuel consumption and increased design flexibility, with more rounded and bolder lines in vehicle models.
Currently vehicles have on average 50 kilos of parts and accessories made of plastic within the interior, exterior and even next to the engine, replacing around 350 kg of steel.
Braskem’s broad polypropylene (PP) portfolio meets the needs of today’s sophisticated automotive and compounding applications. Benefits from the proven performance that helps our customers add value to a wide range of innovative downstream solutions include:

  • Reduced wall thickness enables using less raw material in achieving light weighting solutions that lower transportation costs, improve fuel economy, and reduce emissions.
  • Unique balance of stiffness, toughness, and flowability offer exceptional competitive advantages for multiple end users.
  • Joint technology and innovation platforms that enable our clients to meet and exceed stringent market demands.


PP fiber reinforced compounds offer a high degree of freedom in design allied with a reduction in weight in relation to the use of metal. The Braskem high melt flow portfolio is the perfect fit for this market.

In addition to withstanding the most diverse of weather conditions, nowadays we can see the most varied formats in items with straightforward design and function, such as rear-view mirrors and door handles.

Applications in automobile compounds (polypropylene) highly innovation based. Results are observed primarily in terms of performance and emissions within vehicle interiors.

Aggregating quality and cost, today we see lots of compound parts when opening the hood of any vehicle. Compounds enable parts to be designed with increasingly complex geometries.

High melt flow for fast processing combined with high impact and heat stabilization results in high performance PP grades for classic car batteries.

The home appliance segment is characterized by product innovation. Applications demand high mechanical strength, processability, and esthetic qualities. Polypropylene resins meet these requirements by delivering design flexibility, brightness, excellent performance, high productivity, competitiveness, and sustainability over substitutes.

In addition to the grades already established in this segment, Braskem is constantly developing new resins with a unique balance of properties to allow its clients that produce household appliances to innovate and respond to trends in the sector. We also have a line of post-consumer resins, which aims to meet the requirements of the applications and bring a sustainable appeal to products.
