Liqcreate offers a resin cleaner, which is an excellent, effective non-toxic cleaning solution for 3D printing.
After a MSLA, LCD, DLP or Laser based 3d-print process, the printed parts have resin on the outside. It is necessary to clean the product, followed by drying and UV-post curing. There are plenty of methods to clean a resin 3D-print. Usually >70% (Bio)Ethanol or Isopropylalcohol (IPA) is used, >95% purity is even preferred. The parts are often soaked for up to 10 minutes in the part, or an agitator is used, like the Formlabs Wash or the Anycubic wash. The best way to clean the parts is with an ultrasonic cleaner. Often the combination of flammable solvents like Ethanol and IPA are not recommended to use in an ultrasonic cleaner.

Tips when using Liqcreate Resin Cleaner:
- – Do not dilute Liqcreate Resin Cleaner with water.
- – For best results, pre-wash in a separate container to remove excess resin.
- – In case of skin contact: wash off with soap and water.
- – Store below 30°C in closed container.
- – When using two different ultrasonic cleaners, one for the first wash(with used resin cleaner) and the second for the final wash (with fresh resin cleaner) you will achieve better results and use less Resin Cleaner.
- – Although Liqcreate Resin Cleaner is not classified as toxic and harmful for the environment, most resins are, therefore used resin cleaner residue (washing solvent and contaminated papers included) should be treated as chemical waste and disposed as such.
- – Due to the high boiling point of Liqcreate Resin Cleaner, the cleaner won’t evaporate from surfaces like ethanol or IPA.
- – Liqcreate Resin Cleaner is not compatible with ABS or Polystyrene tools / surfaces. Using Resin Cleaner on that type of polymers, the surface will become softer or brittle. Please check the outer box of the ultrasonic bath. For example, if the exterior of the ultrasonic cleaner is made of ABS polymer, the use of Resin Cleaner inside the ultrasonic bath is not recommended.
