Post-Processing Guidelines for Tough 2000 Resin

Efficient post-processing is essential to ensure optimal mechanical properties and functionality of parts printed with Tough 2000 Resin. For washing, adhere to the recommended duration of 10 minutes followed by an additional 10 minutes in IPA, ensuring parts are not left tacky. Subsequently, post-cure the printed parts for 60 minutes at 70°C to enhance their mechanical properties and enable them to function as designed.

  • When washing parts printed with Tough 2000 Resin, ensure not to exceed the recommended IPA concentration to prevent tackiness on part surfaces.
  • Parts requiring two wash times should undergo two wash cycles, with the second cycle utilizing clean solvent to ensure thorough cleaning.
  • Post-curing is crucial for engineering-focused resins like Tough 2000 to optimize mechanical properties, with a recommended duration of 60 minutes at 70°C.

Form Wash Settings

  • Duration: 10 minutes + 10 minutes in IPA
  • Notes: It's essential to adhere to the recommended duration for washing parts printed with Tough 2000 Resin. If washed in IPA with more than a 5% resin concentration, part surfaces may become tacky. Ensure to use fresh solvent if parts remain tacky after washing. Parts requiring two wash times should undergo two wash cycles, with the second cycle utilizing clean solvent. The first wash cycle removes the bulk of the resin, while the second cycle ensures thorough cleaning of the parts.

Form Cure Settings

  • Duration: 60 minutes
  • Temperature: 70°C
  • Notes: Post-curing is crucial for parts printed with engineering-focused resins like Tough 2000 to optimize mechanical properties and functionality. Ensure to adhere to the recommended post-curing time of 60 minutes at 70°C to achieve the desired results.
