Adaptive3D Launching World’s Highest Strain 3D Printable Photopolymer

April 11, 2018 | Dallas, TX – Dallas, Tx – On April 24th Adaptive3D Technologies will launch the world’s highest-strain 3D-printable photopolymer. The highly anticipated event will occur at RAPID + TCT 2018 held in Fort Worth, Texas.

In partnership with several Fortune 500 companies, Adaptive3D has developed a proprietary chemistry for photo-curable resins that enable unprecedented strain capacity leading to tougher materials and more durable printed parts. With strain of 450% the material will be 115% higher than the nearest competitor.

“Adaptive3D has spent the past two years developing an advanced proprietary chemistry that gives us a platform to now rapidly infuse the market with a series of high performance production quality photopolymers,” said CEO Walter Voit, PhD. He went on to say that, “this event will open up a new class of high strain materials to the Additive Manufacturing community and we invite everyone to join us at RAPID + TCT 2018.”

Despite massive investments into Additive Manufacturing, progress into end part production has been hindered by poor material performance. In a 2017, Ernst & Young reported that product quality was one of the top hurdles to implementing 3D printing.

Kial Gramley, VP Sales & Marketing said “We believe that material performance is the key that is going to unlock the true potential of Additive Manufacturing. We focus on tough materials that combine strength with high elongation and, as a material supplier, we do not lock our customers into any platform like most companies in this space; we just compete on performance.”

Adaptive3D will launch its first products, including the highest elongation 3D printable photopolymer at RAPID + TCT booth #2529 on April 24th. RAPID + TCT is an annual event produced by SME and will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
