RadTech is the non-profit association for UV+EB photopolymer chemistry. In cooperation with The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announces the formation of the Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Alliance (PAMA), with a mission “to engage industry, academia, government and NGOs to advance materials and systems science for additive manufacturing.”(RadTech).

To kick-off the new group, PAMA will convene a three-part virtual workshop that will provide an overview and opportunities for photopolymer materials and systems characterization within 3D Printing. The workshop takes place from 16 to 18 November, from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT and will build on the success of the Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Roadmap developed by NIST and RadTech in 2019.

The Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Roadmap developed from the workshop guided by NIST, and RadTech highlights key actions that must be taken for Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing to be a substantial contributor to global manufacturing, …,The Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Alliance (PAMA) Webinars in November will be a significant step to accelerate photpolymer additive manufacturing collaboration and research.”

-Mike Idacavage, Radical Curing LLC.

The workshop will feature an overview of PAMA, interactive networking sessions with focused topics, and an open discussion regarding the state-of-the-art tools and methods to characterize PAMA materials.

Panel:Jeff Stansbury, University of Colorado Denver Anschutz; Stephanie Benight, Tactile Material Solutions; Neil Cramer, Arkema; H. Jerry Qi, Georgia Institute of Technology; Robert McLeod, University of Colorado Boulder; David Walker, Azul3D; Cameron Miller, NIST; Xiayun Zhao, University of Pittsburgh; and Dianne Poster, NIST.

The PAMA team includes Dianne L. Poster, Ph.D., NIST; Callie I. Higgins, Ph.D., NIST; Jason P. Killgore, Ph.D., NIST; Mike Idacavage, Ph.D., Radical Curing, LLC; Neil Cramer, Ph.D., Arkema; and Stephanie Benight, Ph.D., Tactile Materials Solutions.
