PPG Ambient Reactive Extrusion (ARE) Additive Manufacturing Technology

PPG ARE 3D Additive Manufacturing

PPG ARE 3D Additive Manufacturing (AM) is an agile, reactive extrusion-based technology that expands the capabilities of current manufacturing technologies with a broad selection of new materials and printing capabilities.

This technology addresses shortcomings of current AM processes by providing multimaterial, covalently bonded, isotropic, end-use parts at scale and speeds suitable for aerospace, military and commercial applications.

By merging PPG’s decades of material development and color expertise with the advantages of PPG ARE 3D, PPG is positioned to enable transformational growth opportunities for innovative manufacturers at all stages of production.
