Which choices do we have on Daylight Resins?
I'm planning to make an LCD Resin printer. I'm still learning and I found out that I need daylight resin (which hardens when white light comes from the LCD).
If I search for "Daylight resin" on Google, the only "useful" result I find is for Photocentric.
Photocentric sells Daylight resins and the prices seem to be good too; however, I'm trying to search for alternatives. I'm not interested in something cheaper, I'd like to choose a resin which has more colors. Photocentric's hard resin only comes in cream/green/gray colors. I would need at least white/black/transparent resin.
Is it the only option we have? Are there any other manufacturer out there which produces Daylight resin/LCD-hardening resin with a variety of colors?

It looks like Ono may fit what you are looking for.
They have several colors listed on their site.
They also have a flexible resin and a low temperature "casting" resin.
It is unclear if the resin is available now or if it is preorder.
It is on preorder. that would be a good alternative, do you know if it's the only option we have? Also, "Clear" is not that clear... It's more like translucent yellow. This is clear to me
@BackSlash I think the observation that the "whitest" and "clearest" resins they make have a yellow tint indicates their base resin has a yellow tint. Looking more carefully at the "red" and "blue" I can see it there are well as the the "red" has a bit of orange to it and the "blue" has a bit of aquamarine to it.
@BackSlash, I don't use this technology, I just did a search. I haven't seen any other options. I believe that this technology is presently in its infancy; so, there aren't that many options. There also be other issues limiting this (such as Patents)
