Where can I find the technical data sheets (TDS)?

The technical data sheet of each Liqcreate resin can be found below. All mechanical data is collected according to the measurements explained in this article. Mechanical data of the resin is acquired by 3D printing a sample of the resin and post-processing and post curing it according to the instructions per resin. Mechanical samples were [...]

UV aging of 3D-printing resin tested by Eindhoven University

Researchers and students at the University of Applied Science investigated the UV aging and UV stability of 3D-printed Liqcreate resins. The aim of this research was determining the effect of UV light on Liqcreate resins in the long-term. The analysed resins in this research were the Tough-X, Flexible-X and Strong-X resins. The resins were aged [...]

How to get a clear surface finish on 3D-printed parts?

Clear and transparent 3D prints are ideal for creating clear prototype parts, showing internal cavities and details. Applications like LED housings, prototyping lens parts and microfluidic devices are a few examples of application 3D-printed with clear resin. Resin 3D-printing is one of the only 3D-printing technologies that can create high resolution transparent plastic parts. One of [...]

3D-printed Strong-X resin part in freezing conditions

A 3d-printed plastic part can be exposed to different environments in its life-cycle. For some applications, the part is exposed to cold or even freezing conditions. For engineers it is important to know how the 3d-printed material behaves in these conditions when selecting the right material for the application. Recently a company active in cooling [...]

Linear shrinkage of 3D-printing resins

In the field of resin 3D-printing there are two mainstream resin technologies. One based on acrylates and the other one based on epoxides. In large scale SLA 3D-printers like from UnionTech, 3DSystems, Raplas, RPS,  EnvisionTEC and others, epoxy resins are the standard. These materials cure by a mechanism of ring-opening-polymerization which limits the shrinkage which [...]
