Stereolithography resins for rapid prototyping

Article-Stereolithography resins for rapid prototyping

A new series of stereolithography resins reportedly offers users high humidity resistance and toughness. The Somos Raven 7600 Series is part of the Somos line of ProtoFunctional stereolithography resins. Raven 7620, the first product in the line, is a photopolymer for solid-state laser equipment that comes as a clear, amber-colored material that becomes dark during the polymerization process. The dark color achieved is reportedly highly sought after for both automotive and industrial applications.

Low product viscosity allows for easier cleaning and overall convenience in the build process, and parts made with Raven 7620 can also be used as patterns for investment casting. The ProtoFunctional line also includes transparent resins and a line with flexibility properties similar to polypropylene and polyethylene.
