The VISIOMER portfolio offers a large range of methacrylates as diluents and co-monomers applicable in photo-curable SLA 3D printing techniques. The right choice of VISIOMER monomers as a reactive diluent allows for tailoring the properties of your printed objects.

Typical properties include:

  • High weatherability
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • Enhanced mechanical properties

Some well-established reactive diluents are VISIOMER IBOMA and VISIOMER HEMATMDI, but VISIOMER also offer a range of di and tri- functional crosslinkers such as:

  • VISIOMER EGDMA: a co-agent for rubber cross-linking and can replace volatile pastiziers in plastisols or improve mechanical properties of plastic films and artificial marble resins
  • VISIOMER TMPTMA: a trifunctional monomer used where hi cross-linking density is required
  • VISOMER TRGDMA: applicable in dental compounds and adhesives for various dental applications

VISOMER methacrylates have a diverse selection of solutions such as:

  • Post-Processing: VISIOMER GDMA and UHP-HEMA provide free hydroxyl group for isocyanate curing or further functionalization.
  • Adhesion: VISIOMER MEEU is used to improve adhesion and cohesion of emulsion polymers for PSA’s.
