In a game-changing move for the world of 3D printing, Netherlands-based manufacturer Liqcreate has added a remarkable addition to its resin portfolio: the Liqcreate Flame Retardant HDT. This cutting-edge engineering 3D printing resin is designed to withstand high temperatures, offering a UL94 V0 flammability rating, making it a versatile choice for applications in engineering, mobility, consumer goods, and electronics. With its unique features and adaptability to a range of 3D printing systems, it’s time to explore how this innovative resin is setting new standards in the industry.
Liqcreate High-Performance Resin for Demanding Applications
The standout feature of Liqcreate’s flame-retardant HDT resin is its exceptional capacity to endure high temperatures without the risk of combustion. Thanks to its self-extinguishing properties, this resin is an ideal choice for high-temperature applications. It boasts an HDT-B value of 257°C (495°F), making it perfect for scenarios where other materials might falter. Moreover, its UL94 V0 rating ensures it’s suitable for use in interior components for automobiles, aircraft, trains, and electronic devices. It also lends itself well to tooling manufacturing aids, connector housings, and covers.
To ensure its reliability and safety, the Flame Retardant HDT resin has undergone rigorous testing, including evaluation by the UL94 organization, which confirmed its impressive UL94 V0 flammability rating at a thickness of 3mm. Internal testing, guided by FAR 25.853 standards, showed that the resin passed the 1.5mm thickness vertical burn test. These promising results lay the foundation for further applications in the aviation and mobility sectors, with potential additional testing to meet aviation standards (FAR 25.853) or train part requirements (EN-45545).
Liqcreate leverages A Customizable Solution for OEM Partners
