SLA

11122 XC Watershed
11122 XC Watershed is a low viscosity liquid photopolymer that produces strong, tough, water-resistant parts. It offers many properties that mimic traditional engineering plastics including ABS and PBT. This makes the material ideal for many applications in the automotive, medical, and consumer electronics markets. Most importantly parts created with 11122 XC Watershed are nearly colorless and look more like true, clear engineered plastic.

18420 Protogen
18420 Protogen is a liquid, ABS-like, white colored photopolymer, providing considerable processing latitude and has excellent tolerance to a broad range of temperatures and humidity. 18420 Protogen is ideal for the medical, electronic, aerospace and automotive market. (Higher mechanical properties may be achieved through thermal postcure).

DSM Somos NeXt Propeller

NeXt
NeXt is an extremely durable stereolithography (SL)resin that produces very accurate parts with high feature detail. Based on the DMX-SL technology, NeXt is a next generation of material that facilitates the production of tough, complex parts with improved moisture resistance and greater thermal properties.

Perform - Stereolithography - SLA material

PerForm
PerForm is a ceramic-based material that has the lowest viscosity of any stereolithography material and produces parts with excellent detail resolution, outstanding stiffness, and superior high heat tolerance. PerForm parts make excellent applications for tooling, wind tunnel testing, high temperature testing, electrical casings, and automotive housings. Higher mechanical properties may be achieved through thermal postcure.
