Arkema to open Center of Excellence to develop 3D Printing resins

Arkema will launch its 3D Printing Center of Excellence at its Sartomer Exton, PA facility. Along with its partners such as Sartomer, the company aims at developing 3D printing resins through material research and collaboration.  

Arkema is a French company that specialize in chemistry. In the additive manufacturing market, the company’s core business is a line-up of polymer materials. They are available in filament for extrusion, in powder for SLS as well as in liquid for UV curing.

Sartomer and the company would be among the first to design engineered resins for UV-curable additive manufacturing marketed under its N3xtDimension® brand. The line-up of photo-cure 3D printing materials integrate thermoplastic-like mechanical properties for applications such as dental, sports and electronics.

Lastly, “the 3D Printing Center of Excellence will house most UV based technologies: stereolithography (SLA), Digital Light Processing (DLP), and Multi Jet Printing (MJP) to name a few. It provides a collaborative space for chemists and application engineers to develop custom resins for customer needs. This advanced lab will complete the existing R&D network of the Group dedicated to the fast-growing 3D Printing market, a driver of Arkema’s future growth.
