Universal Fibers® Update: COVID-19

March 31, 2020

To our community, 

Universal Fibers’ broad product offering serves commercial, transportation and industrial segments, and includes 3D print filament used for various applications such as medical and health care materials. In joining the fight against COVID-19, Universal Fibers has ramped up production of PLA and PETG print filament as the only chemistries approved to produce 3D Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Given the challenges and risks of coronavirus, we are doing everything possible to increase filament supply used specifically to print 3D masks and face shields needed to protect medical staff, patients and communities.

Universal Fibers remains committed to doing everything possible to defeat this global pandemic. In addition to securing the health and safety of our global employees and customers, we have joined forces with aligned organizations from healthcare, nonprofits and industry. We are proud and gratified to know our PLA and PETG print filament is being used to produce critically needed supplies for personal protective equipment, and thank the thousands of individuals and businesses engaged in printing essential PPE for the medical community.
