Vantico Starts Selling Stereolithography
Materials Directly to Prototypers

EAST LANSING, Mich., April 23, 2002 - Vantico Inc. announced today that, effective immediately, it will accept orders for and supply 20 different RenShape“ stereo-lithography (SL) materials directly to the marketplace. It will also continue to develop, test and introduce advanced SL photopolymers to customers throughout the world. The products will no longer be available through 3D Systems Corp., or its distributors.
        Vantico initiated actions to terminate its 1990 Distribution Agreement with 3D Systems on August 17, 2001. Negotiations and arbitration to conclude the trans-action culminated in a March 20, 2002 settlement agreement.
In anticipation of beginning SL-direct sales, Vantico has increased its staff of photopolymer chemists and experts in SL materials technologies to assemble a product development and technical support team that is dedicated to focusing on customer service and responding quickly to changing industry needs. The company has also established a global network for order processing and local distribution of SL materials to ensure timely, efficient material delivery to customers throughout the world.
