Top 5 material technology developments of 2013

19. December 2013

Throughout 2013, we saw myriad launches of a diverse range of new materials, with a cluster of introductions coming at K 2013. For this reason, selecting the “top five materials” was nearly an impossiblew task, so we decided to expand the list a bit by categorizing the new material developments by applications that are seeing increasing activity.

Included are biobased materials targeted to packaging and beyond; specialty resins for medical and healthcare uses; materials for the swiftly-growing LED lighting market; new materials for additive manufacturing; and, enhanced polyolefins for a broad range of applications.

Biobased materials:

Medical-Grade materials:

3. LED Lighting materials:

Novel Polyolefins

Additive Manufacturing/Prototyping materials:
