HC Starck Tungsten Powders, Goslar, Germany, a subsidiary of Masan High-Tech Materials Group, is now offering its tungsten powders and complementary innovation services for Additive Manufacturing under the brand name starck2print®.

The starck2print powders are produced by reducing tungsten oxides in a hydrogen atmosphere. This process contributes to stable production quality at customers’ facilities thanks to the products’ consistently high purity. The company’s extensive recycling expertise also enables the creation of a closed loop within which the tungsten components are recovered from used AM parts and reused as raw materials.
Hady Seyeda, CEO, stated “We believe that metal tungsten has considerable potential in 3D printing. Establishing our own brand underlines our expertise and ambitions in this innovative growth sector.”
