Precious Metal Coatings for 3D Printing – DE-AURO 3D Printing

Specification and application areas of our coated elements from 3D Printing


DE-AURO 3D Printing is, among other things, PMU plates, which are produced by our partner Forward AM using the 3D printing process. This is a completely new material and was developed together with BASF and the designer Jörg Petri. The special thing about it is that a completely individual design can be offered here as a basis. These design plates are then produced in a 3D printing process. Due to the system, the starting material is a rather inconspicuous ochre colour. It is the DE AURO coating that gives the material its unique, high-quality character. The panels are finished by us in four different variants.


Production and further use of precious metal coated PMU from the 3D printer

This new type of material made from PMU plates is used in a wide variety of areas: We use the different patterns from 3D printing as room dividers, privacy screens, sun shades to acoustic insulation in critical spaces.
The material can be used openly in its respective structure. However, it can also be inlaid in acrylic to create a completely new design element for a wide variety of application scenarios. If it is inserted between 2 panes of glass, it can even be used in façade construction. Depending on individual design wishes, for example, this creates light-flooded rooms in which the sun does not dazzle, but the refraction of light and shadows are used as a style element in their own right.
