Resin Enterprise is excited to announce its venture into the dynamic world of 3D printing. With the 3D printing industry’s meteoric rise, having reached $12 billion in total sales in 2020, we anticipate an explosive growth trajectory, soaring to an estimated $51 billion in sales revenue by 2030.

In a six-month span during 2020, over 50 million parts were brought to life using the capabilities of 3D printing. Plastic 3D printing offers a low barrier to entry, empowering innovators to swiftly and cost-effectively bring customized products to market. This accessibility has revolutionized the way we think about design and manufacturing.

One of the remarkable features of 3D printing is the diverse range of engineering materials available, and Resin Enterprise proudly supplies a comprehensive selection. Among these materials, ABS stands out as a cost-effective choice, combining high durability with remarkable flexibility. Meanwhile, Nylon presents itself as a compelling alternative to ABS, enhancing engineering properties for even greater versatility.

Polypropylene, though an option, poses challenges in the 3D printing realm due to its tendency for shrinkage and warping during the printing process. On the other hand, TPU emerges as an excellent candidate for creating flexible plastic parts, often serving as a rubber replacement.

At the pinnacle of 3D printing plastics lies PEEK, unrivaled in its performance. PEEK boasts exceptional strength and remarkable chemical resistance, making it indispensable for critical applications demanding heat resistance and unparalleled engineering properties. However, its crystalline characteristics present unique challenges in the 3D printing process, requiring specialized expertise.

Notably, Carbon fiber-filled (30%) ABS reigns supreme in the 3D printing arena, offering superior strength and versatility. Please find below a summary of our typical property data for this material, reflecting our commitment to delivering excellence in every print.
