Abstract

This paper presents a research on composition photo absorber (Sudan I) effect based on curing parameter, the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) projector as energy light source initiated the photo reactive polymer. The polymer based material with composition of 1, 6- Hexanediol dicrylate, Phenylbis(2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyl) phosphine oxide with varied Sudan I concentration was used to build 3D structures. The structure was fabricated with three different photo absorber concentrations 0.002%, 0.003%. and 0.006%. of Sudan I. In this experiment the photoreactive polymer solidification phenomena was evaluated.The experiment result obtained, that exposed time of the varied photo absorber was most significantly affect the surface roughness values and the solidification layer time regardless the layer thickness. This work represents that photo absorber composition solution gave a different characteristics for 3D microstructure fabrication
