mery Oleochemicals, Düsseldorf, Germany, launched its new LOXIOL metal filament products for Additive Manufacturing at Formnext 2022. The LOXIOL metal filament products expand the company’s offerings to the AM market for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), a Material Extrusion (MEX) process.

LOXIOL metal filament products eliminate complicated powder management issues, and enable 100% of the metal powder to be converted to the final part as support structures can be recycled. The FFF process itself, complementary to MIM, also offers quick and cost-efficient part production.

Emery’s LOXIOL metal filaments portfolio is comprised of five materials and each will be available in diameters of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm. The materials include the following:


The parts exhibit high corrosion resistance, toughness, and ductility, as well as high acid resistance. This combination is said to be well suited to a wide range of applications in aerospace, automotive, energy, jewellery, medical, shipbuilding, and other industries.


The components made of LOXIOL 17-4PH material have high corrosion resistance and high strength, a combination well suited to medical applications such as surgical instruments.


The nickel-chromium alloy is suitable for use with high temperatures and corrosive conditions. Components additively manufactured using LOXIOL 718 have good tensile, fatigue, creep and fracture strength at temperatures up to 700°C, making them suitable for many high temperature applications such as gas turbine parts, medical instruments or parts for the power and process industries.


This high-purity copper offers good electrical and thermal conductivity making it suitable for a wide range of applications.


TI6Al4V is a well-known light alloy, which is characterised by excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance combined with low weight and biocompatibility.
