With their Fila-Cycle brand, the British company ObjectForm has introduced 100% recycled filament and pellets to the market of 3D printing material. Their Fila-Cycle ABS filament is now winner of the Plastics Industry Award 2015.
While Judges praised the product, actor and comedian Alan Davies presented the award for Best Recycled Product of the year 2015 to Scott Knowles Co-Founder and director, in front of an audience of over 700 industry professionals last Friday.
“For me the win qualifies our position and thoughts of where we think 3D printing is heading. I personally am proud to accept this award on behalf of the ObjectForm and the Fila-Cycle team. This is a win for the 3D printing industry and it is something we should all be proud of. To have our product be recognised by the plastics industry as the best recycled product of the year 2015 means we have finally arrived,” said Scott Knowles, Co-founder and Director of ObjectForm.
ObjectForm currently offers ABS and HIPS, either as ready-to-use 1.75 mm filament on spools or in the form of pellets. The materials, deriving from the automotive and electronics industry, are an environmentally sustainable alternative to virgin plastic polymer filaments.
The company will also shortly be announcing a new Kickstarter campaign to introduce several other 100% recycled plastic filaments of their Fila-Cycle brand.
