Product Description

The new Lotus Resin is a general purpose photopolymer LCD resin, which is specifically engineered to work with our Lotus EZ 3D Printer. The resin is almost odourless and allows you to 3D print objects with extremely high accuracy and relatively short curing times.

Unique features

  • Almost no odour  – Compared to other resins on the market our Lotus Resin is relatively odour-free!
  • UV & weather resistant
  • Fast printing with short curing times
  • High accuracy
  • Vivid colours with an extremely high level of colour fastness
    • Truly opaque and translucent colours available
    • No discolouration and/or yellowing
  • Low shrinkage
  • Engineered for the Lotus EZ 3D Printer

Resin properties (uncured liquid)

  • Viscosity: 500 cps at 25°C

Preparation(s) before starting to print

  1. Shake the bottle for at least 2 minutes before each use.
  2. After shaking the bottle, leave the resin to rest for 10 minutes to let air bubbles get out of the resin

        o The resin can be poured back from the vat into the bottle once your print is finished

  1. Always use protective measurements like safety glasses and nitrile gloves when handling resins.

General printing guidelines

Base Curing Times at 50 micron for Lotus Resin – Red (Transparant): 13sec

Post processing

We do advise to post process your 3D print in order to achieve the material properties.

  1. Rinse your 3D printed object in IPA or (Bio)Ethanol for approximately 5 minutes
  • An ultrasonic cleaner is preferred/recommended.
  1. Make sure that IPA and/or (Bio)Ethanol rinsed objects are perfectly dry before further post-curing.
  • Place the rinsed parts in a well-ventilated area for at least 30 minutes, or use pressurized air for at least 2 minutes
  1. Cure your object in a high power curing chamber for approximately 20-30 minutes at 65° C
  • The preferred curing wavelength is between 300-410nm.

Safety

Please always be aware that when 3D printing with resins that you are working with chemicals and that you should always be cautious and use the personal protective equipment as stipulated in our safety data sheets.

  1. Always wear Respiratory Protection when sanding/cutting the resin object.
  2. Always use nitrile gloves when handling resins and uncured resin object.
