Can your resins be used to create RTV silicone molds?

Our Spot-HT resin has been tested to work for silicone molds. The silicones that have been tested successfully are Tin-cure RTV silicones, such as  Silpak R1348, or Smooth-on Tin-Cure Silicone Rubber.  You can cure the silicone around the print without the need of a coating. On the other hand, Platinum-cure resins are much more sensitive […]

How to clean the printed objects? What liquids and solvents to use?

The most used method for cleaning the objects immediately after printing is to plunge or spray them with a 50/50% mix of water and Ethanol, Isopropyl Alcohol or TPM (Tripropylene Glycol Methyl Ether). We discourage from using Methanol as it is toxic. After cleaning the object with the above mix, you can rinse the object, […]

Do your resins need to be post-cured?

Sometimes, if your exposure time is chosen to be short or your color concentration is relatively high you will need to post-cure the finished object. You can do this quite easily and effectively exposing it to the sunlight or to fluorescent light. Tungsten Halogen works as well, but the best results are achieved if the […]

How fast do your photoactive resins cure?

This depends on the power output and the wavelengths available from your light source. The more UV and/or blue light your source has, and the higher the intensity, the quicker our photoactive resins will cure. As a guideline, the time to cure a 0.1mm layer of resin, without any colorant stands between 1 and 15 […]
