With collaborations with some of the largest material manufacturers in the world, 20,000 cp printing capability and access to thousands of resins, you have a variety of options available that will allow you to achieve the results you need based on your application.
HTL is a high performance engineering material with high strength, rigidity, and heat resistance, able to withstand temperatures up to 114°C.
UTL offers high toughness and elongation for high flexibility applications.
BIO is a biocompatible resin suitable for non-implantable medical applications. BIO can undergo sterilization and has passed numerous ISO biocompatibility tests.
RG from the Forward AM Ultracur3D® photopolymer resin line is a durable engineering material which can be used to print functional end-use parts. In addition to being biocompatible, it doesn’t uptake any water and is suitable for a wide range of applications such as electrical cases, medical devices, snappers and functional prototyping.
HT 200 is a high temperature material that can withstand temperatures up to 200°C with high strength and durability, perfect for end use applications.
TOUGH is a rigid, robust engineering material with a good combination of strength and elongation. TOUGH can be used to produce end-use parts.
AL (Alumina) Ceramic is perfect for applications involving tooling, casings and housings, and medical devices – able to withstand high temperatures with high strength properties and chemical resistance.
BMF MED powered by 3D Systems is a rigid amber material for applications requiring biocompatibility, translucency and/or thermal resistance. It provides parts with crisp details, that can be sterilized and tested at high temperatures, over 100 °C.
LOCTITE 3D 3955
LOCTITE 3D 3955 is a high-performance halogen-free flame retardant UL94-V0 high modulus photopolymer resin. Printable at 60 °C. Available on the microArch S350.
Mechnano’s Formula1µ is a black, rigid, static-dissipative photopolymer resin that was created using the company’s proprietary discrete Carbon Nanotube technology, D’Func, to produce high resolution, Nano-Uniform ESD parts with isotropic properties and no carbon sloughing. Available on the microArch S140, S240 and S350.
