Desktop Metal, a global leader in additive manufacturing 2.0 technologies for mass production, and Evonik, a leading materials provider in 3D printing technology, announced their expanded collaboration on photopolymer and materials development with the qualification of Infinam  ST 6100 L on the ETEC Xtreme 8K and the Pro XL.

Evonik Infinam ST 6100 L is a benchmark material in high-strength photopolymers for 3D printing. With an ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of 90 MPa, flexural stress of 135 MPa, and heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 120 °C, the material also delivers exceptional accuracy, surface finish, and resistance to many chemicals and UV degradation.

Desktop Metal’s ETEC brand for polymer 3D printing is a leader in Digital Light Processing (DLP) hardware and a carefully curated portfolio of the world’s best AM materials.

“Desktop Metal is delighted to add Evonik and its INFINAM® material to our highly selective portfolio of polymers, as we continue to offer customers the flagship material solutions in each performance class, ranging from stiff rigid plastics to high strength-to-weight ratio elastomers and foams,” said Walter Voit, Senior Vice President for Polymer Materials at Desktop Metal. “Our hardware systems offer the size, speed, and quality required for high-throughput Additive Manufacturing 2.0 production of premium photoresins like ST 6100L.”

“Collaboration with customers and partners is an important driver of innovation for us,” said Vitor Lavini, head of Evonik’s photopolymer market segment in the company’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Growth Field. “The validation of ST 6100 L on Desktop Metal’s printers – especially the ETEC Xtreme 8K – fits with Evonik’s vision that larger and faster DLP printers will increase productivity, substantially reduce costs per part, and enable series production in the long run.”
