Kemeera, Inc., a California-headquarters product development services company and Objet Geometries reseller, today announced availability of a new high temperature 3D printing material (RGD525™). The high temperature material is capable of simulating the thermal performance of engineering plastics and provides outstanding dimensional stability for static 3D models and prototypes.
"We are very excited to offer our customers a wide spectrum of materials for simulating engineering plastics," said Kemeera co-principal Michelle Mihevc. "High temperature material will allow industrial designers and manufacturing engineers to perform genuine thermal functional testing of 3D printed parts and prototypes. The models created in this material are more resilient in diverse environmental conditions."
RGD525 has a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 0.45MPa at 149°F out of the printer and 176°F after a short oven-based, post-thermal treatment. The High Temperature material produces 3D models and prototypes combining high thermal functionality with outstanding dimensional stability. The material's temperature resistance makes it highly beneficial for thermal testing of static parts such as hot air-flow or hot water-flow in taps and faucets. When jetted off the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer, the High Temperature Material can be simultaneously printed with Objet's Tango family of rubber-like materials to simulate over-molded parts such as air-flow vents used in automotive, defense and household appliances.
With these new additions, the number of Objet 3D printing materials is brought to a total of 68, including 51 composite materials (Digital Materials), enabling a wide range of rapid prototyping usages, from realistic product visualization to advanced functional testing.
