UV curable resins and resists
Our UV imprint materials or resists can be used as a permanent layer or as a sacrificial layer (etch resist). Either way, its properties usually have a defining impact on imprinted product quality and durability.
Leaning on years of experience, our imprint resins and resists are developed and produced by our subsidiary: Morphotonics Materials.
For each application the resist needs to fulfill specific requirements. For example, optical applications require a certain transmission and refractive index, while etch applications require a certain etch rate. Finally, compatibility of the resist with the imprint process and substrate needs to be guaranteed.
UV imprint material properties
Our nanoimprint materials share some common properties. All of the materials we offer are compatible with our Roll-to-Plate nanoimprint process: they are curable by UV light and free of solvents.
Generally, our resins are optically clear with tunable refractive index. Various materials can be used as substrate, where some of the material combinations will require an adhesion promoter or primer. In this case we can supply or advice a suitable adhesion promotor or pre-treatment.
UV imprint material product range
From our experience with several applications we can already offer imprint resins and resists with engineered properties. Our UV imprint material product range is displayed below.
Next to our existing product range, we can advise, select and supply materials suitable for your specific application. If you have special requirements, we can help and develop a customized material to meet your needs.
OUR NANOIMPRINT PRODUCTS
From our stand-alone nanoimprint machine for low volume production “Portis”, to our state-of-the-art imprint platform for mass production: Aurora.
We develop and produce our high-end durable flex stamps ourselves. We assist in optimizing them during the R&D process to fulfill your requirements.
The performance of your product and nanostructure is highly dependable on the quality of the UV resin or resist that is used for the imprint.
Together we engineer the best imprinting solutions for your application. We create samples for testing or even custom made prototypes to wow your clients.
