DSM Somos an innovation leader in the development of rapid prototyping materials, introduces the first composite stereolithography material to incorporate nano-particle technology.
NanoForm 15120, the latest addition to DSM Somos' ProtoComposites product line, is a composite material exhibiting many properties similar to fused deposition materials and glass-filled polyamide sintering materials, with the accuracy and precision inherent in stereolithography. Mechanical performance includes an exceptionally high modulus of >5,000 MPa, and an elevated temperature performance (HDT) of >132°C.
"The composite technology of NanoForm contributes to exceptional dimensional stability, low shrink, and low coefficient of thermal linear expansion," says DSM Somos Application Development & Technical Service Manager Matt Cantwell. "This material offers a unique alternative to previous stereolithography and selective laser sintering solutions available on the market. It is processed in an identical manner to unreinforced liquid SL resins, requiring no mixing or other special handling."
