Clear SL Resin

Built on a patented resin technology, a highly clear, colorless stereolithography (SL) resin for rapid prototyping is now commercially available. In a color comparison test using a colorimeter, the data showed WaterClear Ultra closely mirrored the behavior of a high-clarity acrylic and demonstrated higher clarity than a commercial-grade polycarbonate sheet. Compared with traditional clear SL materials, which have a green or blue tint, the new resin can produce better-looking prototype lenses or packaging materials. Because of their extraordinary clarity, WaterClear Ultra parts can be used right off the machine in many cases, thus saving finishing time and costs. DSM Somos,
