This UV-sensitive resin is the build material for the Peopoly Moai Laser SLA 3D printer, and part of the Peopoly Moai Model Resin series. This resin cures when exposed to UV light and as such has to be stored out of direct sunlight, but reacts very well in the Moai. Parts cure black and are very firm.
The Peopoly Moai was made for this resin, and it produces some beautifully smooth 3D prints. The magic of UV-sensitive resin printing is that layers are chemically bonded as they cure, and do not need to be squashed together like traditional FDM machines. This effectively eliminates the contoured edges present on all plastic parts and produces an incredibly smooth finish.
Peopoly Moai Model Resins have also been tested extensively with the FormLabs UV resin 3D printers and have been found to print excellent quality prints in FormLabs printers.
SLA resin is technically a hazardous material, though you're safe to use it as long as you handle with care. It is recommended that you handle with nitrile gloves, and common sense. For more information on good resin practices, read our helpful article about it, here.
