EnvisionTEC, a global developer of professional-grade 3D printing solutions, and Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, will introduce E-Aquasol water-soluble resin at Formnext 2019. Developed through a collaboration between the two companies, E-Aquasol resin is designed for use on EnvisionTEC’s proprietary cDLM® 3D printing platform and incorporates Sartomer’s N3xtDimension® UV-curable resin technology.
E-Aquasol resin is ideal for printing molds in a wide variety of industrial applications. The water-soluble 3D printing resin, designed for EnvisionTEC’s proprietary Envision One cDLM® printing platform, allows industrial manufacturers to shell-cast thin-walled parts with high feature resolution. Thanks to its high water solubility, E-Aquasol resin is an optimal choice for users who seek to avoid the use of more aggressive solvents such as caustic.
“Collaboration is at the heart of our 3D Printing Solutions by Arkema platform vision, aiming to identify new opportunities to support successful adoption of additive manufacturing,” said Sumeet Jain, Global Director for 3D Printing Business, Sartomer. “We are excited and eager to work with EnvisionTEC, a global leader in the manufacturing of production-grade 3D printers, leveraging our material and EnvisionTEC’s 3D printing expertise to bring advanced solutions to the market.”
Formnext attendees can learn more about E-Aquasol resin at Arkema’s booth in hall 12.1, E99 and EnvisonTEC’s booth in hall 11.1, C81.
