Formlabs’ High-Temp Resin is a high-performance resin that’s been designed for prototyping. It has an extremely high heat deflection temperature of 289 °C (version 1) and 238 °C (version 2), which makes it suitable for injection moulding and testing hot air and fluid flow.
High-Temp Resin is also Ideally suited to production processes like casting and thermoforming. It’s mouldable and extremely durable when printed, and it offers a very high level of detail reproduction. It has the highest heat deflection temperature of any 3D printing material on the market making it capable of withstanding significant thermal stress.
This resin comes supplied as a cartridge, for use with the Form 2 3D printer. It is also compatible with the Form 1+ printer, just pour the resin out into the tray.
The Form 2 is Formlabs’ most advanced 3D printer to date, with a sliding peel mechanism that gently removes parts from the print bed, and an automated resin system, that refills the tank automatically when it detects resin levels are running low. High-Temp Resin makes full use of the Form 2’s 35 °C heated resin tank; it is gently heated in the tank for consistent results.
Formlabs’ High-Temp Resin is suited to design, engineering and manufacturing applications where extreme thermal resistance is desired.
- High temp resin prints must be soaked in IPA for no longer than 10 minutes or it will begin to absorb the IPA.
- It must be dried thoroughly before UV curing to avoid cracking.
- Post curing is necessary to achieve the high heat deflection temperature.
- Post curing using a UV light with wavelength between 365nm and 405nm (for best results use 365nm) for 1 hour.
