M. Holland Company, a leading distributor of thermoplastic resins, providing suppliers with the most strategic channels to market, has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Owens Corning. M. Holland will distribute Owens Corning’s XSTRAND line of products. Owens Corning is a leader in the glass fibre reinforced composite industry.

Owens Corning’s XSTRAND line of products are high-performance composite filaments for 3D printing, a growing market segment in which M. Holland is investing to support client needs. M. Holland will serve as the master distributor for the products, managing a network of sub-distributors and directly distributing XSTRAND filaments to M. Holland clients in the thermoplastic resin industry in the US and Mexico beginning in late May.

Owens Corning’s XSTRAND product line employs proprietary fibre reinforcement technology developed within its global technical network including dedicated 3D printing laboratories in the USA and France. XSTRAND filaments enable the production of 3D printed parts that are 50-250 per cent stronger and stiffer, making them structurally superior to traditional 3D printed parts. In addition, the XSTRAND materials have good chemical and UV resistance. This combination of performance makes the XSTRAND product line suitable for industrial production and functional prototyping.

Ed Holland, CEO at M. Holland said, “We expect 3D printing to become an integral part of the global manufacturing infrastructure. Consistent with our mission as a distributor, we want to provide our suppliers with reliable channels to the plastics market while providing our clients with customised solutions to their material needs, which, to a growing degree, include 3D printing.”

To support its 3D printing initiatives, M. Holland is investing in new 3D printing capabilities at its research and development centre in Easton, Pennsylvania, and adding dedicated commercial and technical support resources. (GK)
