PhotoCentric Daylight Precision Hard Resin White is a photosensitive material that solidifies when exposed to visible light. This photopolymer is perfect for producing incompressible hard parts with great endurance. It can be printed using a broad range of conventional light sources, especially LCD screens. It is a safe material that doesn’t require the use of UV light sources. It works with the own-brand Liquid Crystal Printers, special devices designed for visible-light-curing resin 3D printing. Specifically, it has been formulated to produce highly strong, accurate parts on the PhotoCentric Liquid Crystal Precision and Precision 1.5.
Daylight Precision hard resin prints retain their shape under stretch and pressure. They behave like acrylic and polyamide polymers featuring high hardness and almost no elongation. They show a glass-like white surface finish and crisp edges. They are subject to shrinkage.
PhotoCentric Daylight Precision Hard Resin White is water-washable and soluble in soap. Final prints can be cleaned using hot tap water instead of chemicals. They should be post-cured under UV in water followed by UV light at 80 °C for at least 1 hour. After post-exposure, you will get their maximum tensile properties.
Daylight Precision Hard Resin is perfect for the manufacturing of engineering parts, consumer products, and thermoforming models. Continue reading for a deeper review.
When using PhotoCentric Daylight Precision Hard Resin you will get stiff parts with high tensile properties and low elongation. They will not bend or deflect. After a complete post-exposure, they will get a Shore D hardness of 94.
The resin cure profile has been optimized to deliver high-resolution details and acceptable shrinkage at fast exposures.
Precision Hard resin sells in 1kg bottles with a non-drip cap. Keep the material away from direct sunlight either when printing or storing it. You can reuse the excess polymer after pouring it through a filter.
Here are the technical properties of Precision Hard resin prints after post-curing:
