NextGen: Next Generation of Functional Materials for Engineering and Biomedical applications

NextGen 3Dresyns is the Next Generation of biocompatible 3Dresyns, which exhibit a significant improvement of mechanical properties in comparison to the state of the art technology and competitive products.

The key advantages of the NextGen Tough and Foldable TF grades are increased toughness and foldability without breaking of even extra hard grades (Shore D80), which normally suffer from significant brittleness. They exhibit superior shattering/impact resistance, without any brittleness despite their high hardness (Shore D80).

Benefits of the NextGen 3Dresyns product range

  • All products can be easily blended together to achieve intermediate properties (rigidity, toughness, hardness/flexibility balance) for specific minimum feature size printed parts, with easy and intuitive prediction of final prperties by interpolation
  • All products have similar fine tuning characteristics, the Fine Tuner dosages and print settings of any of our NextGen 3Dresyns in your printer will work with any other NextGen 3Dresyns, making easy and fast the overall fine tuning process, "fine tuning one resin, works for all the rest". Ideal for making blends of NextGen 3Dresyns to balance overall properties of your 3D prints.

RELATIVE SHORE HARDNESS SCALE AND RIGIDITY IN DECREASING ORDER

Extra Hard & Rigid R grades at room and high temperature (100% biocompatible)

  • 3Dresyn R290D90: Rigid up to 290C (Shore D90)
    • High Deflection Temperature up to 290C, extra hard and rigid, minor unavoidable brittleness for its ultra rigidity even of small parts, medium impact/shattering resistance, non yellowing (excellent light fastness), biocompatible
  • 3Dresyn R190D90: Rigid up to 190C (Shore D90)
    • High Deflection Temperature up to 190C, extra hard and rigid, minor unavoidable brittleness for its rigidity, medium impact/shattering resistance, non yellowing (excellent light fastness), biocompatible

      Shore Hardness Scales

      CLICK HERE; SPECIAL PACK OFFER OF 4 DIFFERENT MATERIALS OF YOUR CHOICE:  IDEAL FOR SELECTING THE RIGHT HARDNESS  & MECHANICAL PROPERTIES FOR YOUR SPECIFIC APPLICATION

      * Note: Shore hardness values are relative and approximate, since in practice hardness can be perceived higher or lower than the declared values. Hardness depends on several variables, including dosage of Fine Tuners FT1 and LB1 used, light wavelength and power, exposure time, post-curing settings, time from printing until hardness readings since materials tend to get harder upon time until their properties stabilise in a couple of hours, effect of room temperature when making the hardness readings, specially for flexible grades, etc.

      Shore hardness readings also depend on the thickness of the prints. Below 6 mm thickness, and when readings are too close to the sides (less than 12 mm) materials may show lower or higher hardness readings, specially for flexible grades.

      Since most 3D prints are usually small in size, perceived hardness (and rigidity) differs from Shore hardness readings undertaken with bigger prints, with more than 6 mm thick and at least 12 mm from the sides.   

      Perceived foldability also depends on the thickness of the print: the higher the thickness the lower the foldability for the same resin.
