  • Patent number: 9757901
    Abstract: The present invention comprises a laser sintering powder composition comprising: greater than 30 to 90 wt. % of a hydrogenated styrene-butadiene/styrene-styrene (S(EB/S)S) block copolymer or a hydrogenated styrene-butadiene-styrene (SEBS) block copolymer, or a mixture thereof; 10 to less than 70 wt. % of a C3 to C8 polyolefin, or a mixture of two or more polyolefins, 0 to 20 wt. % mineral oil, 0.2 to 1 wt. % of one or more antioxidants, 0 to 5 wt. % colorant, 0 to 20 wt. % surface modifying agent, wherein the total of the above ingredients is 100 wt. %, and optionally 0 to 5 parts by weight of a powder flow agent, based on 100 weight parts of the laser sintering powder composition. The composition has a melt flow rate of at least 20 grams/10 min. at 190° C./2.16 kg mass. The invention also comprises laser sintered articles and methods for making the same.

  • Publication number: 20150125682
    Abstract: A fuse molded modeling three dimensional article having areas of dissimilar or different hardness is described, wherein one of said areas is hard and is plastic, metal, glass, wood, concrete, rock, or mixtures thereof, and another of said areas is a less hard area comprising a controlled distribution hydrogenated styrenic block copolymer composition. Although the metal, glass, wood, concrete, and rock are not fuse moldable material, the plastic and the controlled distribution hydrogenated styrenic block copolymer composition are. Thus the scope of the invention is meant to include articles where only one area or layer of the article is fuse molded, or wherein both the hard area/layer and the soft area/layer is formed via a fuse molded technique.
