High Temperature Resin


We have developed high temperature materials designed for use in harsh environments.
These materials have heat deflection temperatures at or above 100 °C. The parts are solvent resistant and can be autoclaved to sterilize for biological applications. Just like all of our resins, these resins print with outstanding resolution, high print speed, and excellent reliability.

Revolutionary Casting Resin


We have developed a range of different materials for casting.
These materials exhibit good handling characteristics, print with high resolution, high print speed, and excellent reliability. Our casting materials can be offered in orange, red, blue and black.
Our casting materials burn clean without leaving behind any ash and do not interact with or cause cracking of the gypsum.

Abstract

Glass and polymer optics are used extensively in a variety of applications. Some uses for optics include medical disposables, bar-code scan/recognition, security and fingerprint scanners, motion and presence sensors, rifle scopes, eyeglasses and charge-coupled device (CCD) cameras.
Polymer optics offer several advantages over traditional glass optics including lighter weight, ease of manufacturing and lower material cost. Due to these advantages, optical glass materials have been successfully replaced with polymer optics in many applications such as eyeglasses, phone screens and cameras.
Current drawbacks of polymer optics include the lack of a high precision fabrication method as well as limited materials that exhibit equivalent material properties to those of glass optics1.
There are an abundance of optical glass materials available for use in commercial optical systems and very limited optical polymer materials. In this study, we explore a variety of materials with a wide variation of refractive indices and Abbe numbers to create a broader range of optical properties from which to choose when designing polymer lenses.
A plethora of different chemistries utilizing a comprehensive list of monomers will be investigated to create an expansive polymer materials library for use in lens fabrication.
The goal is to create polymer optical materials for direct view sighting systems due to their lighter weight, lower material cost and ease of manufacturing.
