Covestro, the former Bayer MaterialScience, is making a push into three-dimensional printing. The company opened a lab at its headquarters in Leverkusen, Germany, meant to develop polycarbonate and polyurethane materials for fused filament, laser sintering, and stereolithographic 3-D processes. Covestro says a paucity of materials has been an obstacle to widespread adoption of 3-D printing.
