Mitsubishi Chemical and atum3D have successfully co-developed a new resin for atum3D DLP (digital light processing) printers. The material, which can solidify under a 365 nm light source, will be named DiabeamTM. Mitsubishi Chemical’s expertise in the formulation and production of UV resins and atum3D’s competence in combining chemical expertise with their 3D printing hardware and software into customer application solutions proved to be a valid match.

DiabeamTM “I’m glad to have such a professional partner like atum3D on board to develop the materials our customers demand,” commented Dick Hoogerdijk, Director Marketing and New Business Development, Mitsubishi Chemical Europe. “This new development shows the commitment of Mitsubishi Chemical to become one of the leading suppliers in the 3D printing sector.”

DiabeamTM possesses specific properties for heat and impact resistance which are difficult to reach for photocurable resins. In addition, it benefits from a high scratch resistance which makes it a perfect fit for long-lasting interior trim parts, covers and frames in an automobile or other vehicle interiors.

Joep Koopmans, Manager Business Development and Partnerships at atum3D, added: “atum3D is proud to collaborate with Mitsubishi Chemical, an experienced and renowned company for UV resins. As an instrumental part of the integral application solution that also includes hardware and software, we believe this technologically advanced material offers new opportunities for short lead times, fast design and development iterations as well as local, just-in-time production of automotive interior parts.”
