PhotoFusion® X has two key improvements:
- New improved, faster dye compounds (each less than 0.3 mm in diameter), need very little light energy to react.
- The new speed-optimised carrier matrix (a more spacious resin) gives the molecules more freedom to quickly fold or unfold at their maximum level of performance.
