Evonik, a developer of high-performance polymers and components, has launched a brand new photopolymer resin that’s each flame retardant and mechanically sturdy when cured. Designed to be used with DLP (digital gentle processing) 3D printers, INFINAM FR 4100L is pourable at room temperature and might be printed and additional processed to realize a desired floor really feel.

“INFINAM FR 4100L is our newest product to handle ongoing buyer demand for a 3D printable resin that may meet the distinctive necessities of aerospace, automotive, and electronics purposes,” stated Vitor Lavini, Head of Market Phase Photopolymers at Evonik’s Excessive-Efficiency Polymers enterprise line. “Elementary to those market segments are elements that may stand up to contact with sparks, flames, and numerous kinds of fuels.”

INFINAM FR 4100L has a licensed UL 94 flame retardancy ranking of V-0 at 3mm thickness. As soon as cured, the ensuing product options excessive elongation at break, good haptics, and a very good floor end that may be additional machined and polished. It additionally reveals a degree of toughness just like supplies fabricated from ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic.

“Evonik is dedicated to growing progressive options that meet the wants of our prospects,” says Dominic Stoerkle, Head of the Additive Manufacturing Innovation Development Subject at Evonik. “INFINAM FR 4100L is an ideal instance of our dedication to innovation and customer-centricity. We imagine the distinctive properties of this product can be effectively fitted to 3D printed prototype and useful manufacturing elements in essentially the most demanding aerospace, automotive, and different industrial purposes.”

Evonik’s actions to assist 3D printing know-how are consolidated below the corporate’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Development Subject. The objective is to develop and produce industrial, high-performance supplies which can be prepared to make use of for all main polymer-based 3D printing applied sciences. In consequence, the specialty chemical substances firm is advancing 3D printing as a large-scale industrial manufacturing know-how throughout all the worth chain.
