Porcelite Ceramic Resin Expands the 3D Printer Materials Market
Omaha, Nebraska (PRWEB) February 02, 2016
Tethon Corporation Inc. ("Tethon 3D") , a leader in ceramic 3D printing, announces the launch of its Kickstarter project: Porcelite Ceramic Resin for SLA/DLP 3D Printing. Now, individuals using 3D printers with a UV light source, have the option to print in a true porcelain ceramic material.
"We developed Porcelite to provide a ceramic material for the growing market of UV light source desktop 3D printers,” says Karen Linder, President and CEO of Tethon 3D. “Porcelite is a photo-cured resin material that fabricates a solid ceramic composite straight from the 3D printer. If desired, it can be fired in a kiln, resulting in a 100% porcelain object suitable for glazing or other traditional ceramic finishes.”
The purpose of the Kickstarter campaign is to assist Tethon 3D with manufacturing, bottling, packaging and distribution of this new material directly to the consumer.
Ceramic 3D prints produced by SLA/DLP technology show high-resolution details, are heat shock tolerate and thermal and electrical insulating. They are durable, nonmagnetic, and oxidation resistant.
“In addition to its technical qualities, Porcelite produces beautiful pieces that are a pleasure to view and hold,” adds Linder.
