Ceramic Look and Feel
In addition to its mechanical properties, it offers a unique aesthetic similar to traditional ceramics. This gives a premium quality touch to the printed parts, making them not only functional, but also aesthetically pleasing.
HOMOGENEOUS MATT FINISH
Parts printed with this material have a smooth, uniform and matt surface finish. This aesthetic quality enhances the visual appeal of printed pieces, giving them an attractive, ceramic-like appearance.
High Thermal Resistance
The material is designed to withstand high temperatures without compromising the structural integrity of printed parts. This makes it an ideal choice for applications such as electronic housings or wind tunnel test models, where the part may be exposed to high temperatures.
The new Ceramic Resin is an innovative addition to our range of 3D printing materials. Designed for high heat resistance and high elastic modulus, this composite white ceramic resin offers unique functional and aesthetic qualities.
• Ceramic look and feel
It aesthetically presents a unique, uniform matt finish that offers a ceramic-like look and feel. This adds a refined touch to any 3D printed piece, distinguishing it from those made from other materials.
• High Thermal Resistance
One of the main characteristics of this material is its impressive thermal resistance. Unlike many traditional 3D printing resins that may deform at high temperatures, ceramic resin maintains its structural integrity even under heat. This makes it the preferred material for applications such as electronic housings and enclosures, heat sinks and even wind tunnel test models.
• High Elastic Modulus
It has a high elastic modulus, which means it has a high resistance to deformation under load. Its rigidity exceeds most other materials used in 3D printing, making it ideal for applications requiring a robust and rigid material.
• High Density
Despite its several advantages, it has some limitations. One of these is its high density, resulting in heavier parts than those printed with other 3D printing materials. For projects where weight is a key factor, this could be a critical issue.
• Low Impact Resistance
High rigidity, although it is an advantage in some applications, results in lower resistance to sudden impacts compared to more ductile materials. For components that might be exposed to high impact forces, other materials might be more appropriate.
Comparison to other common materials
Compared to standard resin, Ceramic Resin offers greater thermal resistance and stiffness, making it a more suitable choice for high-temperature applications and those requiring high rigidity. However, standard resin may be a more suitable choice for applications requiring higher impact resistance or a lighter material.
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene):
ABS is known for its strength and impact resistance. However, compared to ABS, Ceramic Resin has a higher thermal resistance and rigidity, making it a better option for high-temperature applications or those requiring a more rigid material. ABS, with its higher impact resistance and lower density, may be a better choice for applications requiring these properties.
Compared to nylon, this resin offers greater rigidity and heat resistance. While nylon has higher impact resistance and lower density, Ceramic Resin may be a better choice for applications requiring a more rigid material or those involving high temperatures.
In conclusion, the material offers a number of unique advantages, including high thermal resistance, high rigidity and unique aesthetics. However, it has limitations, such as high density and lower impact resistance. However, its distinctive properties make it an excellent material for a wide range of applications, such as electronic housings, heat sinks and more. The right choice depends on the specific requirements of the given project.
The high thermal resistance and rigidity of Ceramic Resin make it the ideal choice for a range of applications. These include:
The thermal stability of Ceramic Resin makes it ideal for items that need to withstand high temperatures. Electronic housings, heat sinks and other components that interact with high heat can be well-produced with this resin.
Wind tunnel test models
The high rigidity of the resin, combined with its thermal resistance, provides the perfect characteristics for producing models for wind tunnel tests, where materials need to withstand not only aerodynamic forces but also potentially high temperatures.
Decorative and Household Items
Thanks to its unique ceramic-like aesthetics, Ceramic Resin can be used to create a range of decorative objects, from vases to statues, and even household items such as lighting devices or tableware.
For prototypes requiring high rigidity and thermal deflection, Ceramic Resin can provide a solution. Designers can validate their models in real-world conditions, making it a valuable tool in the design and testing process.
Briefly, Ceramic Resin solves a crucial gap in the 3D printing landscape. Although not the most suitable choice for all projects due to its higher density and lower impact resistance, its high thermal resistance, rigidity and unique aesthetics make it an exceptional choice for a wide range of applications.
Regardless of whether you are designing a heat-resistant part, creating a rigid model for the wind tunnel or crafting a beautiful object for the home, Ceramic Resin offers performance and aesthetic qualities that are hard to beat. As 3D printing expands and evolves, the field of application for this innovative material is set to grow.
