Precision 3DP using UV curable monomers

Applicable Business Areas3D printer makers, 3D printer resin manufactures

Target Applications3D printing

Resonac is one of only four companies in the world who manufactures DCPD (dicyclopentadienyl) monomers. These monomers have numbers of unique features inherent to the chemical structure itself.

Innovative Solution

Low cure shrinkage monomers improve dimensional accuracy of 3D printed objects

"FANCRYL" <500 series> Series developed by Resonac has a bulky DCPD structure that it contributes to low cure shrinkage when added to 3D print resin formulations. These products improve the dimensional accuracy of 3D printed objects with fine, complicated shapes.

Less oxygen sensitive monomers improve the yield rate of 3D print objects

"FANCRYL" <500 series> Series is not affected by oxygen inhibition compared to other monofunctional aliphatic monomers. These products reduce the scrap rate caused by insufficient cure.
