High performance, low-shrink

Technical Ceramics


Fortify’s ability to process highly loaded functional additives is a game changer for the ceramics market. For the first time ceramics customers will be able to realize:

  • The speed and part quality of DLP printing with material properties that aren’t possible with current low-loading ceramic resins
  • Post-sintering shrinkages that are up to 75% less than today’s alternatives delivering improved dimensional accuracy and larger parts
  • No messy and hazardous ceramic powders to depowder, clean and recycle

Fortify and Tethon 3D have partnered to introduce the first two options from this new generation of technical ceramic photoresins, which are available for purchase at the Tethon 3D Online Store.

Technical Ceramic Materials

High Purity Alumina (99.8%) (HP-A 99.8) is an alumina-filled photoresin that sinters to a final part purity of 99.8% alumina with only 12% shrinkage. This is a great selection for applications that require high reliability, dielectric strength, corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity, and hardness. Available for purchase from Tethon 3D’s Online Store

Low Shrink Aluminum Silicate (LS-AS ) is a mid-grade ceramic for general industry use. This ceramic exhibits an industry best 5% shrink upon sintering to deliver high tolerance for both large and small parts that feature high geometric complexity. Available for purchase from Tethon 3D’s Online Store

Interested in Other Ceramics?
We have only begun to scratch the surface of possibilities and are rapidly expanding our qualified ceramic offerings. To accelerate the introduction of new ceramic materials, Fortify’s Flux Developer Software gives users full access to tune printing parameters for optimizing the ceramic material properties needed for a target application. These are the same powerful tools that Fortify’s material science team uses daily to generate our own materials. Fortify can also take on custom material development projects for you.
