Z Corporation offers several powder/binder/infiltrant systems to satisfy varying needs. These include high-performance composites for printing strong, high-definition parts; investment casting material for quickly fabricating parts that can be dipped in wax to produce investment casting patterns; and direct casting material for creating sand casting molds for non ferrous metals. For additional flexibility, models printed with our materials can be sanded, drilled, tapped, painted and electroplated.
zp 131 is a multi-purpose material system that delivers the toughest parts, the best resolution and great color accuracy. It is perfect for fit and functional testing.
High-performance composite material that introduces the world’s easiest, safest and greenest post-processing option for finishing monochrome 3D printed models – a quick mist with tap water.
- Monochrome parts misted with pure water require no further treatment or equipment to reach their finished strength. The process is quick, perfectly safe, and virtually cost-free.
- Brightest whites (180% whiter than before)
- Lowest cost per finished part
Direct Metal Casting
The ZCast 501 Direct Metal Casting process enables you to produce cast metal parts from a CAD file faster and less expensively than traditional prototype casting methods. Printing molds and cores directly from digital data eliminates the pattern and core box production step used in traditional sand-casting processes. Metal is poured directly into the 3D printed molds. The technology allows engineers to prototype parts in metal that are too costly and time consuming to produce using traditional methods. Direct Casting Material can also be used to create sand casting molds for non-ferrous metals. This material is a blend of foundry sand, plaster, and other additives that have been combined to provide strong molds with good surface finish. It is designed to withstand the heat required to cast non-ferrous metals.
zp 14 Investment Casting Material can be used to quickly fabricate parts that can be dipped in wax to produce investment casting patterns. The material consists of a mix of cellulose, specialty fibers, and other additives that combine to provide an accurate part while maximizing the absorption of wax and minimizing residue during the burn-out process.
Elastomeric material has been optimized for infiltration with an elastomer to create parts with rubber-like properties. The material consists of a mix of cellulose, specialty fibers, and other additives that combine to provide an accurate part capable of absorbing the elastomer, which gives the parts their rubber-like properties.
