Rapid Prototyping: perfect finishing, impregnation and sealing of porous surfaces
Capillary-active surface finishing for more colour brilliance, colour protection, chemical-resistance, strength and dimensional stability.
DIAMANT dichtol is the mature, ready-to-use polymer impregnation system for the reliable, fast sealing of micropores, porosities and hairline cracks in rapid prototyping. With efficient use of materials and the simplest possible application – and naturally with food and drinking water approval.
Product overview: dichtol for Rapid Prototyping
Thermally, physically and chemically highly resistant
Conventional sealants used in rapid prototyping protect only to a certain extent, since they are limited to the surface. dichtol from DIAMANT Metallplastic, conversely, penetrates into even the smallest of pores and as a result impregnates the treated surfaces in depth – in addition to sealing and impregnating the surface. Apart from the surface finish, DIAMANT dichtol thus also improves the fundamental properties of the workpiece, such as the strength of brittle materials and the dimensional stability of the part. In the capillary-active impregnation with dichtol, a highly resistant polymer is applied to the porous surface. Thanks to the outstanding capillary activity of dichtol, the polymer penetrates deep into the workpiece and hardens there. The hard-elastic high-performance polymer anchors itself in the treated part and reliably seals it, even if temperatures vary. DIAMANT dichtol is extremely resistant to physical, chemical and thermal stresses. The technical properties of the workpiece are fully retained.
Brushing, spraying, injecting or dipping
dichtol adapts itself versatilely and flexibly to the respective conditions of use in rapid prototyping: the polymer system can be applied equally well by simply brushing, spraying, injecting or dipping. It reliably seals pores up to a diameter of 0.5 millimetres.
