Dymax Oligomers and Coatings, a division of Dymax, and Mechnano unveil MechT E35A, a stable dispersion of MechT discrete functionalized carbon nanotubes in Dymax’s urethane dimethacrylate (UDMA), BR-952.

MechT E35A can be used in rigid, high tensile strength SLA, DLP, or jettable 3D printing resins to provide conductivity and decreased surface resistivity to the printed part. When compared to FDM-printed ESD parts, ESD resins produced with MechT E35A can achieve fully isotropic conductivity with high resolution and isotropic mechanical properties. MechT E35A is capable of achieving 104-109 Ω/sq resistivity, provides carbon content with no carbon trails, and is an easy addition to a formula without high shear mixing. Additional applications include low surface resistivity or conductive pinting and application requiring high adhesion.

Mechnano and Dymax will be at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference on May 2-6 in Orlando, FL. Dr. Olga Ivanova of Mechnano will present “Molecular Level Programming of Carbon Nanotubes to Enhance Performance of AM Materials” on May 5, from 10:30-11:15 AM, and from 11:15-12:00 PM, will present “Radiation Curable Dispersion for Fabrication of Static Dissipative Components.”

Both Dymax and Mechnano will be available during the conference to meet with formulators interested in this newly developed material or to discuss other applications.
