Sheet extruder Primex Plastics Corp. is partnering with Azuna LLC to make specialty sheet for three-dimensional printing applications.
Jenkintown, Pa.-based Azuna's patented technology can make two-dimensional plastic sheet appear to have five planes of depth. The company's Generation 2 product line calls for polypropylene sheets to be specially extruded so they collect and refract light.
Richmond-based Primex signed a five-year agreement with Azuna. As a result, more than 100 Primex extrusion lines will be equipped to supply Azuna G2 sheets and rolls.
“Products that truly revolutionize a market don't come along every day,” Primex President Michael Cramer said in a news release.
“Thanks to Azuna, we are about to see a first-of-its-kind technology that creates a depth of image for printing and advertising.”
