Oxo-Degradable Catalyst ODC1 is a photo and oxo-degradable or prodegradant, degradation promoter, which speeds up the degradation of 3D printed materials in the outdoor environment.
Additions at dosage of 1% by weight to any liquid SLA 3D resins, promote that 3D printed materials when introduced to UV/Visible light and heat begin to break down into smaller non hazardous chemicals such as CO2 and water.
This technology exhibits an increase ability for photo degradation of any 3D printed materials. Once the photo degradation starts the printed resins have a higher susceptibility for microorganisms and bacterii to break down them into smaller and smaller fragments over time.
Oxo-Degradable Catalyst ODC1 has been designed for safe and eco friendly waste disposal of 3D printed materials.
The goal of this product line is to promote the usage of biodegradable SLA 3D printing by developing eco friendly catalysts made with biodegradable ingredients which are functionalized to react with light.
Oxo-Degradable Catalyst ODC1 accelerates the biological breakdown into biological simpler substances through the action of enzymes from microorganisms. When this process is completed, the initial organic substances are entirely converted into simple inorganic molecules such as water and carbon dioxide.
One of the key objectives of 3Dresyns is to design, make and promote safe and environmentally friendly 3D resyns and additives to ensure safe printing resin handling and disposal.
This product line has been designed to be safe and environmentally friendly and exhibits these features and benefits:
- environmentally safe photo prodegradant by heat, light and microorganisms
- easy addition by simple mixing in any liquid SLA, DLP & LCD 3D resin
- compatible with most commercial SLA, DLP & LCD 3D resins
- biodegradable and eco safe, without any environmental hazards pictograms
- non hazardous, non labeled product for ultra safe handling
- free of toxic heavy metals
It is supplied as a kit, which contains the product, one graduated beaker and one empty 250 mL black bottle to measure, mix, keep and protect the 3D resins from daylight. Please do not expose any 3D resins to natural or room light to prevent their curing.
Note: Oxo-Degradable Catalyst ODC1 is recommended for any SLA, DLP & LCD 3D resins. Our 60 grams dispenser is normally used at 1% dosage and it is enough for catalysing the biodegradability of at least 6 Kgs of 3D resins.
