Markforged Launches Flame-Retardant Material

May 2, 2019

Markforged, a Watertown, MA-based manufacturer of metal and carbon-fiber 3D printers, announced the availability of Onyx FR, a V-0 rated flame-retardant and self-extinguishing material designed for the aerospace, automotive and defense industries.

“Onyx FR opens up more applications for 3D printing across automotive, aerospace and defense industries because it meets higher fire safety standards,” states Jon Reilly, vice president of product at Markforged. “When these parts are reinforced with strands of continuous carbon fiber, they are as strong as aircraft-grade aluminum at half the weight.”

Onyx FR joins the company’s portfolio of industrial metal and composite materials and will
be available to new and existing customers with Markforged Industrial Series printers.
