The toughest 3D-printing resins available

3D-printing resins are known to be brittle materials. It can be experienced that objects break easily. This brittleness comes from the many cross-links and stiff back-bone of the photopolymers. During exposure, the polymerization process starts and is linking all monomers together, forming a highly cross-linked and stiff network. Tougher materials are required for a lot [...]

Chemical compatibility of 3D-printed resin parts

3D-Printed parts are used in a wide range of applications. In some of these applications the parts are exposed to petrol, cleaning agents or other chemicals. Our engineering team started to investigate the resistance of common chemicals on 3D-printed parts. Compatibility of 3D-printed and post-cured resin parts were tested with several chemicals. The weight of [...]
