Post-Processing Tough 1500

Form Wash Settings: 10 minutes + 10 minutes in IPA - Wash Tough 1500 Resin parts in two cycles using fresh solvent for thorough cleaning, and if intended for skin contact, use ≥99% IPA for 20 minutes, considering part design and ambient conditions for drying. 

Form Cure Settings: 60 minutes @ 70 °C - Post-curing engineering-focused resins, including Tough 1500, at 70 °C for 60 minutes maximizes mechanical properties and is required for skin-contact parts.
