Fun To Do Castable Blend
The Castable Blend has been designed to cast your 3D printed pieces directly in bronze, copper, tin or iron using standard vacuum investment casting methods and settings. It is an Ideal resin for casting pieces of art, Toy models, machine parts. The fully cured resin has a hardness of 73 shore D.
Our resin is up to 8 times cheaper than traditional castable resins.
A DLP Printer with a 180 watt lamp will cure a 0.05mm layer in approximately 2 seconds. A 240 watt lamp will cure a 0.05mm layer in half a second. With the Castable Blend resin you have hardening times among the fastest of all the resins on the market.
Super easy to use
The Castable Blend resin comes ready to use with pigments already optimised and mixed in.
After initial calibration, there is nothing else to worry about. Special formulation has brought down average shrinkage on these resins to approximately 0.5% (the industry average is 3.5%).
The Castable Blend resin have a very faint odour and cause minimal skin irritation as compared to other resins.
When fully cured the Castable Blend resin has a hardness of approximately 75 shore D (what does this mean?). Castable Blend resin has also been tested and proven to withstand a myriad of different chemicals including water, acetone, alcohol and thinner. Find out more here.
- Agitate in a vat of Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA), for 2 minutes to remove excess resin. Use a soft brush if necessary.
- Clean off any excess IPA with a cold blowdryer or compressed air.
- Leave under the sun or in a UV lamp to cure. The resin is sully cured when fingernails do not leave scratch marks on the object.
Store the resin in a dry, cool, shaded place out of direct sunlight.
Do not soak in IPA or water (the resin is hydrophobic). Do not place in an ultrasonic bath.
