1. What is Alumina 4N Resin?

Formlabs developed Alumina 4N Resin to address the need for a technical ceramic workflow that wasn’t prohibitively expensive and complicated. Previously, ceramics made for 3D printing were often only available for systems that cost upwards of $250,000, and came with complex workflows that limited users’ ability to reliably, consistently, and affordably produce 3D printed ceramic parts.

Alumina 4N Resin answers these challenges by combining the materials science and engineering behind technical ceramic materials with the ease of use, consistency, and affordability of Formlabs’ 3D printers.

2. Mechanical Properties of Alumina 4N Resin at Different Temperatures

Alumina, like many ceramics, is used at extremely high temperatures, often exceeding the melting point of most metals, including all steels and even nickel superalloys. Understanding how it behaves at these temperatures is critical, and marks the difference between whether a part will succeed or fail.
