Case Study

Mouthguard Maker Scores with 3D Printing Technology

Helped customer improve product performance

The Dutch sports consortium, 3D Mouthguard, needed help developing a custom athletic mouthguard, seeking to bring a better product to market with the precise modeling capabilities and accelerated production times afforded by 3D printing technology. Device wearers needed a flexible and soft material for optimal protection, comfort and durability, while device providers desired an efficient, customizable and cost-effective design that provided a fully automated and digital customer experience.

Nexeo Plastics’ 3D printing team joined its supplier–partner DSM to review how to meet the demands of high-performance athletes for a mouth safety product. The analysis included understanding the desire for a product to be both robust enough for complete protection under grueling conditions, but flexible enough to ensure maximum comfort.
