B-Tough UV20
As a bio-based polyester diacrylate building block, B-Tough UV20 enhances the impact resistance and toughness of photocuring resins, including in additive manufacturing. B-Tough UV20 can improve the viability of production quality parts, by enhancing dimensional stability and anisotropy during curing, as well as extending part durability and improving resistance to water and chemicals without increasing crosslinking density and thereby brittleness. Recommended dosage is 10-30wt% in resin formulation.
