FormFutura® Castable LCD Series - Castable Wax Resin
About The Materials
Castable Wax Resin is a highly accurate wax-based casting resin for 3D printing direct investment casting parts for dental, jewelry and industrial applications.
Formfutura’s Castable LCD Series - Castable Wax Resin is a blue wax-based castable photopolymer 3D printing resin that is specifically engineered for compatibility and excellent processability with all type of open source LCD / LED / MSLA 3D printers.
Our Castable Wax Resin is a highly accurate wax-based casting resin for 3D printing direct investment casting parts for dental, jewelry and industrial applications. The wax component in this 3D printing resin offers a clean ash-free burnout and extremely low expansion factor ensuring the wax filler to melt and shrink away from the mold without expanding and by that protecting fragile investment molds. This wax-based castable 3D printing resin has an exceptionally low shrinkage factor and 3D prints parts with smooth surfaces with incredibly fine detail. FormFutura’s Castable LCD Series - Castable Wax Resin has been tested extensively and validated by both dental technicians and jewelers.
Low expansion factor
High dimensional accuracy with low shrinkage factor
Smooth services with incredibly fine detail
Almost odorless processing
Compatible with all open-source SLA, DLP, and LCD 3D printers in the range of 385 - 405nm
Preparation(s) before starting to print
Shake the bottle for at least 2 minutes before each use.
After shaking the bottle, leave the resin to rest for 10 minutes to let air bubbles get out of the resin
The resin can be poured back from the vat into the bottle once your print is finished
Always use protective measurements like safety glasses and nitrile gloves when handling resins.
We do advise you to post-process your 3D print in order to achieve the material properties
Rinse your 3D printed object in IPA or (Bio)Ethanol for approximately 5-10 minutes
An ultrasonic cleaner is preferred/recommended
Make sure that IPA and/or (Bio)Ethanol rinsed objects are perfectly dry before further post-curing to prevent warping or cracking.
Place the rinsed parts in a well-ventilated area for at least 4 hours, or use pressurized air for at least 5 minutes
Cure your object in a high power curing chamber (like the CUREbox™ Plus) for approximately 60 minutes at 65°CAnd after that approximately 2 hours of thermal curing at 100°C. The preferred curing wavelength is between 300-410nm
Comparison of technical specifications for FormFutura Engineering LCD Series 3D printing resin
Within our Engineering LCD Series of 3D printing resins, each resin focuses on a specific property. The table below shows the technical data for all our Engineering LCD resins and makes it easy to compare resins based on their mechanical properties.
Please always be aware that when 3D printing with resins that you are working with chemicals and that you should always be cautious and use the personal protective equipment as stipulated in our safety data sheets.
Always wear Respiratory Protection when sanding/cutting the resin object.
Always use nitrile gloves when handling resins and uncured resin objects.
