Check out these frequently asked questions:
The large absorption spectrum of our resins lay’s between 225nm and 415nm and has several peaks within the spectrum.
The Liquid3D family sports some of the fastest cure times currently available for Laser and DLP based SLA printers.
The large absorption spectrum means our UV resins are even sensitive enough to be triggered by LED based SLA printers too.
Note: Our High Reactivity resins require special care to be taken. High Reactivity resins are aggressive on PDMS silicone vat linings, and should only be used in conjunction with a high chemically resistant Vat lining i.e. FEP, PFA, ETFE.
SLA-Laser printers with PDMS Silicone vat linings should be used in conjunction with our less aggressive Low Reactivity resins.
*If you are unsure which resins will work with your printer, please feel free to ask for help.
WANHAO D7 ‘ver.1.4’ and ‘Red Spot’ work with our High and Low Reactivity resins
Anycubic Photon works with our High and Low Reactivity resins
LittleRP and LittleRP2, in conjunction with a DLP Projector work with our High and Low Reactivity resins
Flashforge Hunter works with our High and Low Reactivity resins
Peopoly MOAI works with our range of Low Reactivity resins
Reify Solus, in conjunction with a DLP Projector work with our High and Low Reactivity resins
Low Reactivity resins are formulated for SLA-Laser based machine types, usually with softer PDMS Silicone Vat surfaces.
High Reactivity resins are formulated for DLP(Projector and LED) machine types, with lower powered less focused UV-light sources, and require a Vat surface with high wear and chemical resistance, in order to handle the aggressive nature of highly UV reactive resins. e.g. FEP, PFA or ETFE Vat surfaces.
For more detailed information, consult our resin data spec sheets and MSDS’s on our “Downloads” page.
Our Resins have been tested on just about any chemical we could lay our hands on including:
- White spirit
- Alcohol/Ethyl alcohol
- Paint Thinners
- Hydrochloric acid and various other acids
- Sulphuric acid
- Lamp oil / Motor oil / Olive oil / Brake fluid
The list is still expanding. Every time we come across a new chemical we throw in a print and leave it in there for a week or two.
- Print in a well ventilated room, in order to minimise exposure to resin vapours.
- Wear gloves(Latex or Nitrile) when cleaning prints or touching your printer, SLA resins can cause skin irritation.
- Do not stare at the Light – UV-Light is damaging to your eyes and extended exposure without eye protection, can cause blindness.
- Store out of reach of minors – Many of the chemicals involved with SLA 3D Printing are poisonous. Take care to store them safely when not in use.
- Keep used but uncured resin – Don’t throw away used but uncured resin after prints. If filtered properly, it can be stored it in a separate light blocking container, and reused with fresh resin in future prints.
