The biocompatibility, safety and mechanical properties of any liquid 3D resin as supplied are not absolute because depend on the printing and post processing specifications.
Properties meed to be shown in value ranges, or with values above ">" or below "<" certain x units since different SLA, DLP and LCD printers, postcuring and postprocessing conditions affect significantly the overall physical and mechanical properties of printed resins:
- low power printers, such as LCD printers, tend to yield:
- superior mechanical properties (lower brittleness), higher elongation, tensile and flexural strength, and lower rigidity "Young´s modulus" and HDT than higher power printers, such as laser printers.
- very high power printers, such as strong laser printers eg Formlabs Form 2 & 3, tend to yield:
- inferior mechanical properties (brittleness), lower elongation, tensile and flexural strength, and higher rigidity "Young´s modulus" and HDT than lower power printers, such as LCD printers.

- for any 3D resin, cleansing, postcuring and postprocessing conditions affect the resulting overall performance properties.Read our Instructions For Use IFU
