General Post-Print Procedures
We recommend post cleaning your prints using clean, high purity 99% IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol). For Best results, utilize Vortex mixers or Ultrasonic Cleaners to quickly remove excess resin for a maximum of 10-15 minutes. Avoid leaving prints to soak for extended periods. See Table A for general absorption rates. (Always wear safety glasses and protective gloves when handling 3D Printing Resin).
Completely dry your piece before post curing. Be sure all sides of your print receive equal light exposure to avoid unequal shrinkage on the overexposed side. Unequal cure can damage or dis-form your print. For best results, post cure your print until the surface tack is removed - Extended cure times can increase tensile strength which may be ideal for hollowed prints. When the material is properly post cured, All sides of your print should have equal color and your piece should be noticeably harder.
Table A: Percent weight gain before post curing "Green Solvent Resistance". 1x1x1 cm cubes printed with Table A settings on Creality LD-002R then immersed in respective solvent for 15 minutes. The lower the absorption rate, the less likely the print will experience surface deformations.
|IPA 99%||0 - .82 %|
|Acetone (not recommended)||3.2 %|
