About the founder of 3Dresyns
Dr. Juan Segurola has more than 30 years of industrial experience and is an internationally recognized industrial scientist with extensive experience as technical and commercial director, and as entrepreneur. He has a unique combination of PhD-level academic credentials, practical scientific publications, and a wealth of experience in market driven management and entrepreneurship. He has written about twenty scientific articles on polymers.
Juan Segurola is the sole founder, owner and administrator of the 3D resin company Resyner Technologies S.L. and of its commercial brand “3Dresyns”, based in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.
For the last thirty years, Dr. Segurola has had several international senior positions in multinational and family-owned companies in research, development, sales, marketing, technical service and applications of solvent based, water based, 100% solids, and light curable photopolymer systems.
In his earlier career, he was the technical service and applications manager with BFGoodrich (later called Noveon and nowadays Lubrizol). He received the President´s Award in 2001 for the best Technical Service Manager in Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
Since he launched 3Dresyns in 2017, Dr. Segurola and his team have already provided products and services to more than 230 universities and 2500 companies around the world.
3Dresyns has developed more than 500 high tech environmentally friendly products for 3D printing and rapid additive manufacturing, which are functionalised online to make up to 10 billion final products, to help make 3D printing technology the entrepreneurial compass and growth vehicle for companies around the world.
Segurola and his team have developed the first online offering of multivariable, multiresponse, multifunctional, predictive, and corrective algorithmic systems based on artificial intelligence for designing online billions of materials by adding different levels of custom functionality online. 3Dresyns sales are proportionally distributed among North America, Europe, and Asia, selling products and services already to more than 2500 customers in 50 countries.
About the dream of developing a personal project
After working a quarter of a century for third parties, from research centres to multinational and family companies, Segurola tired of bureaucracy and politics, came to the conclusion of his need to have his own business project without depending on third parties to be able to develop projects of his own interest. He envisioned 3D printing technology and additive manufacturing as the democratic revolution of the digital age, since it makes it possible for anyone to become a "homo faber" or a "man / woman who makes or manufactures", since 3D printing allows the printing and custom manufacture of materials with a low investment, hence the term, democratic revolution since it enables anyone, even without economic resources, to become manufacturer of products.
After a quarter of a century of international academic and business experience in the science, technology and industry of photopolymer and solvent and water based resin systems, in 2017 he decided to launch his own company as sole proprietor, Resyner Technologies S.L., and 3Dresyns, his disruptive online sales platform of 3D resins for additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

Leading disruptive changes for cost effective eco manufacturing
3D printing is a rapidly evolving technology in which new and existing technologies and production processes are continuously developed and improved to manufacture better and safer materials with the lowest possible production costs.
"3D printing makes possible the direct and indirect additive manufacturing of a myriad of high-performance and biocompatible materials with unlimited physical, chemical and mechanical properties, with precise and detailed dimensions, and with minimal investment. It is the revolution of the XXI century, as it empowers and turns people and companies into manufacturers of multifunctional 3D printed materials"
About the objectives of 3Dresyns and its founder
The goal of 3Dresyns is to offer sensible and cost-effective solutions to unmet market needs and to develop 3D functional materials and processes for the development of better, safer, and greener materials and production processes at the lowest possible cost and human impact on the environment. 3Dresyns offers the most extensive range of 3D resins on the world market, characterized by their high multifunctionality and safety for humans and the environment.
The accomplishment of the objectives has materialized in the development and commercialization of the most extensive range in the market of ultra-safe biocompatible functional resins for biomedical applications, both for handling and for end users. The wide range of monomer-free as supplied 3D resins ensures end-user safety by eliminating the potential risk of migration and absorption of monomers in the human body, such as through the mucosa and skin of the mouth in dental applications.
"3Dresyns offers a complete range of safe and functional materials with multiple properties, functionalities and colors: from durable and elastic materials to sacrificial materials for direct and indirect manufacturing"
Safety Benefits of 3Dresyns products
Most of 3Dresyns products are ultra safe and include 3D resins which do not contain any monomers as supplied. They have been designed to meet the highest safety and biocompatibility standards. These products are non labeled with toxic pictograms because they are ultra safe for handling, end users, and disposal. Their final biocompatibility and certification will depend on their tuning with the right tuning additives, functional additives and colors in your specific printing and production workflow. Most competitor´s 3D resins contain toxic ingredients which can cause health problems, since they can be absorbed by the skin. Some resins also emit toxic fumes which can also cause health issues.
Potential health problems of monomer based 3D resins
3Dresyns is globally the first and only 3D resin supplier selling "monomer free" biocompatible 3D resins, colors and additives with Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) with non toxic raw materials and without any toxicity risk hazard pictograms. Monomer free 3D resins do not contain any monomers as supplied. They have been designed to reduce the risk of monomer extraction. 3Dresyns portfolio includes monomer based biocompatible 3D resins for biomedical, orthodontic and dental applications which use safe bio based and synthetic monomers for maximum safety.
