Formlabs has recently expanded their 3D printing materials library. Their mission is to expand access to digital fabrication, so anyone can make anything. This mission has led them to create new resins like their Flame Retardant Resin and BioMed Durable Resin which have expanded the capabilities of Formlabs’ SLA printers.
Now, Formlabs has created two new Resins that will change the game for a lot of applications. Introducing Alumina 4N Resin and Silicone 40A Resin.
Alumina 4N Resin is a high-density and high-purity technical ceramic 3D printing material with exceptional performance in extreme environments: thermally resistant, hard, abrasion resistant, mechanically strong, and chemically inert.
Embrace the future of ceramic engineering with the most affordable ceramic 3D printing ecosystem in the world. Introduce the power of 3D printing to manufacture your advanced ceramic components without expensive tooling, and reduce production costs and lead times while increasing design freedom.
Silicone 40A Resin is the first accessible 100% silicone 3D printing resin. Eliminate molding and labor-intensive casting processes: Silicone 40A Resin uses Formlabs’ patent-pending Pure Silicone Technology™ to 3D print pure silicone parts in-house, in a matter of hours.
Combine the high performance of silicone and the design freedom of 3D printing to create highly functional silicone parts with excellent chemical and thermal resistance (-25°C to 125°C), fine features as small as 0.3 mm, and complex geometries that are not possible with traditional methods.
