SLA printers are available in a variety of resin types as needed. In this article, we will talk about resins and varieties.
Details of resins
1. Classical resins (standard)
Available in different colors, they offer extraordinary performance for exceptional results.
Thanks to their formulation developed for a production of the highest quality, the classic resins allow to arrive at an exceptional level of detail without sacrificing durability and solidity.
On request, these resins can also be painted or tinted in the mass.
2. Technical resins
Four technical resins for prototypes and industrial design are available to simulate a wide range of materials used to produce finished products.
They cover all the diversity and versatility of the properties required to design, prototype, test and produce these products.
2.1 High strength
This resin has been designed to simulate ABS plastic and has comparable tensile strength and modulus of elasticity.
This solid resin, resistant to breakage and can withstand deformations or significant stresses, allows assemblies with elastic insertion and is therefore ideally suited for prototyping.
Flexible resin simulates a hardness 80A rubber. This versatile material is used for parts that must bend and twist over time.
Flexible Resin is ideal for simulating soft-touch materials and for adding ergonomic features to multi-material assemblies.
Durable Resin has been designed to simulate polypropylene (PP). It returns to its original shape after strong pressure.
It has the best impact resistance and excellent elongation behavior.
This resin is used to make parts that must be deformed and have a smooth and shiny appearance.
2.3 High temperature
The High Temperature Resin has a heat deflection temperature of 289ºC to 0.45 MPa, the highest in the 3D printing materials market.
It has a very low CTE and is also the most rigid resin among thoose.
It gives very good results for static applications at high temperature. It can especially be used for manufacturing processes by injection molding or manufacturing by thermoforming.
3. Jewelry Resins
Jewelry resins are designed for precision and fineness of detail. They make it possible to create unique pieces at a lower cost.
3.1 Burnable resin
This type of resin is one of the most accurate resins. It burns and burns without residue, allowing jewelers to move directly from digital design to the master model.
The printed parts made of resin are intended to be burned and to create imprints of molds or sprues.
