Evonik will present two new photopolymers for industrial 3D printing at Formnext 2021
Evonik, one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals, is rapidly expanding its library of 3D printing materials. With INFINAM® RG 3101 L and INFINAM® FL 6300 L, it has developed two new photopolymers for industrial 3D printing. These two synthetic resin The materials are compatible with popular photopolymer 3D printing processes such as SLA or DLP.
Evonik will present the new products for the first time at Formnext 2021 from November 16 to 19 in Frankfurt Main, Germany, in hall 12.1 at booth C69.
“We relentlessly put our strength in global innovation in the development of new photopolymers that allow endless applications. Thus, we are resolutely advancing large-scale industrial 3D printing. The Formnext trade fair is one of the most important international meetings in the 3D printing industry. We are therefore very happy to present our latest ready-to-use high performance materials here for the first time.
– Dr Rainer Hahn, Head of Photopolymers Market Segment in Additive Manufacturing Innovation Growth at Evonik
INFINAM® FL 6300 L
INFINAM® FL 6300 L enables the additive manufacturing of highly flexible 3D objects that excel in material properties essential for elastomers: in addition to exceptional elasticity at low temperatures, its strengths include dynamic load cycles of up to one million charge cycles. This new photopolymer is the result of an innovation project carried out jointly by Evonik and Cubicure, a Viennese 3D printing company since 2019. The hot lithography printing process developed by Cubicure makes it possible for the first time to process Very viscous light-curing polyester. based on resins. Unlike conventional stereolithography, hot lithography creates objects at high processing temperature using light-induced polymerization. The process allows for a much wider range of processable components.
“The INFINAM® FL 6300 L offers completely new manufacturing possibilities in the field of elastic components. Thanks to the high precision with which the elastomer is processed in our hot lithography systems, it is possible for the first time to produce the most complex structures from a rubber-like material. The sports industry shows great interest in using the material for cushioning elements in shoes, handles or backpacks.
– Dr Robert Gmeiner, CEO of Cubicure
INFINAM® RG 3101 L
INFINAM® RG 3101 L is one of the new photopolymers to be launched for use in SLA and DLP 3D printing technologies at the Evonik Innovation Center in Singapore. The ready-made material combines excellent impact resistance with high temperature resistance while exhibiting long-lasting thermomechanical performance. 3D components printed from INFINAM® RG 3101 L, such as drones, buckles or auto parts, can be machine processed and remain resistant to fracture even when subjected to high forces.
Materials for endless 3D printing applications
Evonik brings together its expertise in 3D printing in the field of innovation growth in additive manufacturing. The strategic focus is on the development and production of new high performance materials for all major polymer-based 3D printing technologies. In this context, Evonik has organized its range of ready-to-use productsmaterials (filaments, powders and photopolymers) under the new INFINAM® brand.
