UV resins for 3D printing

UV resins are used in LCD, SLA and DLP 3D printers. The photosensitive materials are cured by laser or light to form a solid part. With a variety of different properties and colours to choose from, there is a UV resin to suit multiple industrial applications.

With the vast knowledge of our in-house team of chemists, coupled with our experience of building our own 3D printers we know what is required to make the best performing resins. Our range of UV resins can be used on other leading 3D printers, such as Asiga, Envisiontec, Flashforge, Formlabs, Peopoly, SprintRay and more.

What our customers say

Darren Anker
Resin: Durable UV80  |  Printer: Peopoly Phenom

Durable UV80 is a great durable resin with engineering material qualities that allow for ease of printing on LCD 3D printers. The qualities allow complex models to be formed with incredible detailing without the days of delay to print large models. From concept to moulding printing with Durable UV80 allows functional models to have both high impact and accurate prints off the printer.

Timo Schütt
Resin: UV DLP Poliglass  |  Printer: Anycubic Photon Mono X

All in all I really enjoyed printing with the poliglass and I am looking forward to use your resins again for further projects.

Stefan van Seggelen
Resin: UV LCD Firm/LCD Hard  |  Printer: Anycubic Photon S Printer

I bought your UV LCD Firm and UV LCD Hard resin to work with on my Anycubic Photon S printer. First of all, the quality of your material is great! My prints look wonderful with your recommended settings!

C Denijs
Resin: UV DLP Flexible  |  Printer: Anycubic Mono

We are very pleased with the flexibility and transparency of this (clear) material with very little yellowing. We have had much positive feedback on products printed with this material.

Righini Stefano
Resin: UV DLP Hard Grey  |  Printer: Asiga Max

I had printing problems with Imprimo resin as well as exaggerated cost. I was therefore looking for a good print quality at a reasonable price. I tried yours and i’m finding it works very well.
