Stratasys announces that Evonik – a specialty chemicals company – has become the third and newest material partner for the Origin One 3D printer based on P3 technology. Evonik’s expertise in the development and production of ready-to-use photopolymer materials helps improve the P3 platform. This prints injection-molded-quality parts with an incredibly precise surface finish from a diverse and ever-expanding range of high-performance materials.
P3 Deflect 120 is the first material to emerge from this partnership – a Stratasys validated material whose reliability has been proven on Origin One. Compared to competing DLP 3D printers, Evonik’s testing indicates up to a 10% improvement in strength. The ability to print components with heat deflection temperatures of up to 120 °C fills a critical need for materials specifically designed to be less brittle at high temperatures. As a result, it is ideally suited for applications such as molds in the manufacturing industry.
“Feedback from our customers has shown that there is a real need in the market for a robust, heat-resistant photopolymer in our portfolio,” said Alex Sant’Anna, director, Additive Manufacturing and Material Solutions – Americas at Evonik. “The bottom line for us in this new collaboration with Stratasys is that Stratasys customers will have more application options and be able to expand 3D printing in manufacturing.”
“Our new partnership with Evonik strengthens the growth approach of our hybrid materials strategy. The market needs validated materials for more and more applications,” said Oren Zoran, VP and Head of Product Management at Stratasys. “We look forward to working with Evonik to explore new applications and further enhance our P3 platform now and in the future.”
Currently, customers in the U.S. and certain European countries can order the material. For more information on the material, visit booth number 433007 at IMTS or on their website.
