Article Summary: High-temperature resins are designed for functional prototypes in high-temperature applications. Avoid storing this material in standard resin tanks for more than one month or in resin tanks LT for more than two months to prevent resin leakage and subsequent damage.
High-temperature resins are designed for functional prototypes in high-temperature applications. Avoid storing this material in a standard resin tank for more than one month or in a resin tank LT for more than two months to prevent resin leakage and subsequent damage.
The remarkable characteristic of this material is its thermal deformation temperature, which is the temperature at which the material deforms under a specified load. High temperatures are ideal for applications that require parts to withstand high temperatures under small loads. High-temperature resin has almost no deflection, therefore, snap fit and living hinge are not suitable for printing with high-temperature resin.
The finishing process of high-temperature printed parts is slightly different from the post-printing steps of standard resins. High temperature can not be rinsed in isopropyl alcohol (IPA) for more than 10 minutes, otherwise parts will absorb IPA. If the part is not completely dry, it will break during exposure to light and heat during post-curing. To complete high-temperature parts, you need to use standard support removal and grinding techniques when post-processing parts printed with high-temperature resin.
