Tethon Corporation Inc. (“Tethon 3D”) released a new 3D printing product. Genesis is a photo-curing polymer resin for use as a developmental base formulation for SLA and DLP 3D printing materials research.
“We are happy to now make Genesis available to anyone who wants to experiment with materials development for 3D printing,” says Karen Linder, President and CEO of Tethon 3D. “The process of developing resins for SLA and DLP 3D printing begins with a base formula that can accept solid powdered materials. The raw materials to do this are fairly numerous and costly. By commercializing a base resin formulation, we can give researchers a good starting point in their materials development process with the goal of achieving initial test results much quicker.”
Genesis is not suitable for 3D printing on its own without adding a solid powdered material. In particular, research with alumina, zirconia, silica, graphene and hydroxyapatite materials are desirable for metal casting, jewelry, dental, electronics and biomedical industries.
Tethon 3D manufactures Genesis at their facility in Omaha, Nebraska and offers it in liter, gallon and barrel sizes.
