Elgin IL , US, 10 Jun 2014 16:00 CEST

Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, introduces Somos® ProtoGen Clear 365nm for photopolymer-based 3D printers.

The 3D printing industry is moving towards incorporating LED and DLP technology in their equipment for cost efficiency and to achieve faster processing. These systems operate at higher wavelengths including 365nm. Somos is responding to this trend by developing materials specifically for this higher wavelength.

Somos ProtoGen Clear 365nm is the next material to be released in the Somos 365nm product portfolio. It is a highly versatile material that can be used for a wide variety of applications due to its excellent transparency, accuracy and high temperature resistance. These robust features make it ideal for multiple industries including: electronics, consumer products, automotive and aerospace.

We are delighted to announce the latest addition to the Somos 365nm product portfolio,” says Melissa Hayes, Business Director Somos. “We are committed to innovation and will continue to expand our portfolio for 365nm photopolymer-based 3D printers while providing customers with the high quality products that they have come to rely on Somos for at this new wavelength.”

The high performance characteristics of Somos ProtoGen Clear 365nm closely mirror those of the category leading Somos ProtoGen stereolithography materials. The Somos ProtoGen family has been one of the best-selling, multi-purpose materials in the Somos portfolio for over eight years used in applications that demand excellent humidity and temperature resistance.

Somos ProtoGen 365nm and Somos PerFORM 365nm are setting a new level of high performance for 365nm photopolymer-based 3D printers.
