FormFutura® Engineering SLA Series - Tough Resin
About The Materials
FormFutura’s 100μm High Light Transmittance FEP film is specifically engineered for 3D printing and combines the highest transparency rate in FEP film with excellent light transmission properties.
Formfutura Tough Resin is an engineering type of photopolymer resin that is specifically developed to work with all open source SLA, DLP, and LCD 3D Printers in the range of 385 – 405nm. Our Tough Engineering resin is extremely transparent and perfectly balances a high impact strength with semi-flexibility. Its high level of toughness makes Formfutura Tough Resin ideal for creating strong and functional parts that will be exposed to repeatedly brief periods of intense stress or strain
High impact resistance
Good UV and weather resistance
Good fatigue resistance
Extremely transparent with virtually no discoloration and/or yellowing
High dimensional accuracy and low shrinkage
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
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.
