Fun To Do Standard Blend
The Standard Blend resin is a resin for DLP or SLA 3D printers: it is a real multi purpose resin, most cost effective for printing your day to day objects.
The Standard Blend resin works with any light source with a wavelength of 225nm to 415nm – this means there is no need to modify DLP 3D printers. Standard Blend resin also work reliably with some models of SLA printers.
Please note: we do not recommend the use of Unpigmented Standard Blend resin with the LumiPocket 3D printer.
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 Standard Blend resin you have hardening times among the fastest of all the resins on the market.
Super easy to use
The Standard 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 Standard Blend resin have a very faint odour and cause minimal skin irritation as compared to other resins.
When fully cured the Standard Blend resin has a hardness of approximately 35 shore D (what does this mean?). Standard Blend resin has also been tested and proven to withstand a myriad of different chemicals including water, acetone, alcohol and thinner.
- 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.
