eSUN release bio-based SLA resin: eResin-PLA

Love working with resin but hate the smell? What about the environmental pollution? eSUN, a company based in Shenzhen, have come up with a solution.

The benefits of working with SLA resin are many. It’s great for precision work and the surface quality is high, making it perfect for highly detailed, intricate work. But it is a smelly material, has environmental pollution, is sticky and difficult to clean if there is spillage. On top of that it can be expensive, and is mostly solidified by UV.

eSUN have been developing bio-materials to combat these defects and weaknesses, and recently launched eResin-PLA; an FDM to SLA cross-border innovative product. The bio-based SLA resin has been researched and produced with the accumulated expertise and technology of eSUN.

The product is suitable for SLA 3D printing devices, using bio-based PLA monomer as a raw material to synthesize. It’s expected to keep the features of stability and high performance, whilst also being environmentally friendly.
