Material Development: UV and IR Curable Resins
At ASL, we support our clients through the formulation and characterisation of curable resins used for 3D Printing. Our expertise and facilities allow us to work in partnership with clients to develop new and novel materials for vat photopolymerisation and material jetting technologies.
Supporting companies wanting to use resins in AM/3DP processes
We know that it is often difficult to find the right resin for a specific application. In many cases there is no suitable resin, stopping your R&D efforts dead and preventing you getting your future products to market.
Supporting companies to identify the best resin for a given application
At ASL, we work with our clients to formulate and characterise UV and IR curable resins that can be used in vat photopolymerisation processes and with inkjet technologies. Using our high-throughput screening methods and equipment, we are able to assess hundreds of possible material formulations for your specific application.
Supporting material companies in the commercialisation of UV & IR curable resins
For companies formulating and selling UV and IR curable resins, additive manufacturing presents a significant market opportunity. However, the market potential for a material will depend on more than just its formulation, it will depend on how that material is characterised and modified to work using additive manufacturing hardware.
Supporting material companies to adapt UV & IR curable resins for AM/3DP processes
At Added Scientific we use our knowledge of chemistry and our extensive additive manufacturing capability to support materials companies and machine vendors looking to bring new UV and IR curable resins to market.
