Filkemp’s history dates back to the 70s, where it was a department within a subsidiary of Hoechst AG, a then leading chemicals and life sciences company. The monofilaments department was spun off from Hoechst AG in 1998 ahead of their merger with France's Rhône-Poulenc S.A in 1999. Hoechst AG became Aventis, and the monofilaments arm which was spun off became Filkemp.
Now, Filkemp holds a leading global position as a polymer and copolymer manufacturer, with production in Portugal and a presence in over 40 countries. They are renowned as one of the top innovators in their industry.
Part of Filkemp’s product range includes a range of 3D printing filaments, which are branded under the 3D Print Master Pro name. These filaments are engineered for home, professional, and industrial use, and include PLA-N, an engineered PLA which is similar in toughness to ABS, PET-G, which can replace ABS, and Nylon, which is widely used in industry for tooling, modelling and parts prototyping.
All these filaments are available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameters, which means they are standardised for desktop and large-format 3D printers.
Filkemp filaments are world-renowned for unfaltering quality and performance. You can always expect the very best 3D printing experience with them, no matter the application or use case you have in mind.
