"Recreus was born from a passion for Industry and the vocation to bring innovation to Additive Manufacturing through the creation of new materials and new production processes, trying every day to go beyond the limits of the 4th industrial revolution."
We have always been nonconformists.
Upon landing in the 3D printing industry in 2011, we discovered wonderful technology with enormous potential, but limited by having so few materials and filaments available with which to print. Thousands of designs and options in mind and without resources to make them come true.
This is how Recreus was born. It is born from the need to go beyond the limits, to create and to satisfy a creative lack. To help expand the possibilities and materials in the powerful world of Additive Manufacturing. Something we have already done by creating Filaflex, the first elastic filament in the 3D printing market. This is how Filaflex was born and this is how Recreus was born.
Since then, we have designed and manufactured the most complex filaments on the market with exceptional quality, making them easy to use. Making the difficult easy. All this with the sole purpose that others only have to dream of what to create.
At Recreus we create for you to believe.
‘Creativity is Flexible’
Ignacio García, CEO and founder of Recreus
We are our values
When we invented Filaflex in 2013, the first elastic filament for 3D printers, we revolutionized the market with its amazing elasticity and outstanding quality. Since then, our passion for creating and innovating with high-performance materials has remained tireless.
Our innovative spirit is rooted in our DNA. We were born to challenge the rigid world of 3D printing, and we will continue to develop and manufacture cutting-edge materials for the Additive Manufacturing industry.
We are committed to making the dreams of the most creative and ambitious minds in 3D printing come true, offering innovative solutions that drive creativity and excellence in every project.
In Recreus, the passion for our work and our role in the 3D printing industry drives us to move forward every day.
Our R&D team is distinguished by their dedication and enthusiasm for the world of 3D printing and technology. We consider ourselves great enthusiasts of the industry and, especially, Additive Manufacturing.
Our commitment is evident in every project we undertake, as we love dedicating all our talent and enthusiasm to this powerful technology. We are aware of its ability to significantly revolutionize traditional manufacturing, driving innovation, the future, engineering, and creativity. In 3D printing, everything is yet to be done and we are ready to lead the way to success!
We manufacture all our 3D printing filaments in our factory in Alicante, Spain. We pride ourselves on being responsible for every step of the production process, which allows us to guarantee the exceptional quality of our products.
Not only do we focus on manufacturing our filaments internally, but we also ensure that all our raw materials and spools come from Spanish and European suppliers. We believe in supporting the local and European industry, and this is reflected in the quality and reliability of our products.
Furthermore, we are committed to complying with ROHS and REACH regulations. This ensures that our filaments do not contain harmful substances and are safe for use in different applications.
Since the beginning and by creating an unprecedented material in the industry as "Filaflex", it has been key and paramount to accompany and help our customers at all times and teach them how to use our materials and / or components. Therefore, we consider essential and a priority the help and customer service, as well as the dissemination and creation of relevant and quality content related to our materials.
From Recreus we want to help you to make your printing journey with our materials much easier and satisfactory. Our team of experts will be happy to help you through the channels we put at your disposal: phone, chat, email and/or social networks.
We like to know that we are transformers and facilitators of dreams and ideas. That we have the magic wand to create materials that will be and become powerful and innovative solutions for industry and society.
That's why we create and manufacture with a conscience, for you and for the planet. From recycled materials such as Reciflex, which is produced by taking advantage of the waste from our production and external KM0 production, to materials such as those in the Purifier family, which integrate a compound that gives filaments the ability to help reduce CO2 and other harmful gases in their environment.
Recreus is the result of 'RE'cicla, 'CRE'a and 'US'a, and as our name indicates, as far as possible, we try to ensure that all our internal manufacturing procedures are sustainable and do not have a negative impact on our environment.
Actions such as the installation of photovoltaic panels for self-consumption in our factory, or the use of evaporated water left over from the drying areas for use in our production, are measures that we carry out to reduce our footprint and to make a commitment to exploit our own resources. Not to mention that we classify our production waste for reuse in the manufacture of our recycled Reciflex filament.
Repsol, Recreus shareholder company
- REPSOL JOINS RECREUS. In 2019, the Spanish energy and petrochemical multinational Repsol joins our company as a partner through its strategic investment fund.
- ACCELERATING OUR R&D AND IMPROVING OUR POSITIONING ON THE MARKET. A synergy that represents a great milestone and a great step for Recreus, since it offers the possibility of accelerating our R&D and the opportunity to improve our positioning in the medium and long term in the 3D printing market.
- IMPULSE TO CONTINUE COMMITTING TO INNOVATION. Undoubtedly, the time to continue betting on our commitment to innovation and to continue developing and creating new materials.
- DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MATERIALS LIKE PP·3D. Repsol has contributed its high degree of experience in the manufacture of polyolefins, resulting in the joint design of a high-quality, high-impact polypropylene filament, PP·3D, very easy to print and suitable for a multitude of industrial applications.
