Congratulations to RadLaunch winners, our class of 2018.
Reboot Medical, Inc.: PhotoCast Casting Tape, light-cured composite tape that hardens on-demand, producing a rigid splint or cast.
Team from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem: Nanocrystal photocatalysts which fill an unmet need for efficient water-soluble photoinitiators for coatings and 2&3D printing.
The Foam Printing Project: Lightweight parts from resin that is foamed using a patent-pending process and solidified using a UV DLP 3D printer, parts have up to 75% gas fractions, are lighter weight and less expensive to produce.
Team from the University of Iowa: Transferrable Shadow Cure (TSC) decouples initiation and propagation mechanisms in cationic photopolymerization to address light penetration problems, thus providing full cure regardless of geometry, pigment and filler content, and sensitivity of material to light and heat.
