Makes 3D printing materials stronger and more durable
Latvia’s deep-tech startup 3D Strong manufactures special additives for the producers of plastics and polymers, mainly in the 3D printing field. The company’s additives give additional properties to end materials and allow 3D printing producers to fabricate stronger, lighter, and more durable parts.
Six years ago, Maryna Petrychenko and Maria Korabovska took part in the “Commercialization Reactor” activity “Ignition Event”. There they met nanotechnology scientists and decided to start developing this technology. The teams’ scientists have been working with different types of carbon nanotubes for 25 years. They are also strong in electrical chemistry. In addition, they were working on anode materials for lithium batteries. “Our scientists not only know how to grow carbon nanotubes but also how to combine them with other technologies,” explains Korabovska.
