Evonik has introduced three new light-curing resins from the INFINAM series dedicated to industrial applications, extending the product line introduced last year. The resins are intended for use in 3D printing in SLA or DLP technology.

The three new resins are INFINAM RG 2000 L, INFINAM RG 7100 L and INFINAM TI 5400 L. The first one is dedicated to the ophthalmic industry. According to Evonik, the clear material cures quickly and is easy to handle. The company also claims that a low yellowing index, even after prolonged exposure to UV radiation, not only makes it attractive for the production of additive manufacturing eyeglass frames, but also suitable for applications such as microfluidic reactors or clear high-end prototypes for observing internal complex mechanisms teams. The high light transmission of the RG 2000 L also opens up other applications for it, such as the production of lenses, optical fibers and light covers.

INFINAM RG 7100 L has been specially developed for DLP printers and enables the production of parts with isotropic properties and low moisture absorption. Evonik says the mechanical properties are comparable to those of ABS material, and the black formula can be used in high-performance printer systems. According to the manufacturer, the RG 7100 L has a smooth and glossy surface, making it ideal for demanding design visualizations. It can also be used in applications such as drones, buckles or automotive parts that require high toughness combined with high impact strength. The company says parts can be machined and remain resistant to cracking even under high forces.

INFINAM TI 5400 L is a resin similar to PVC and is intended for the production of limited editions of toys. The white material is ideal for 3D printing objects with a high level of detail and excellent surface quality. The surface quality of the material is, according to the company, virtually indistinguishable from comparable injection-molded parts and combines “excellent” toughness with high elongation at break and exhibits long-term thermomechanical properties.
