High Modulus Black
Photoplastic Resin for SL
Loctite 3D IND408 designed for SLA Vat printers enables the production of parts with isotropic properties and low moisture absorption.
This unique formulation can be used in very fast print speeds. The printed parts have fine features with a smooth and glossy surface finish making them ideal for design visualization. With a high thermal performance at temperatures greater than 100°C, the resin offers unique properties in the market.
This material is ideal for producing parts quickly with high details and excellent surface finishes for applications ranging from general purpose to end-use parts.

Stereolithography (SLA) Technology
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys Stereolithography Machine
What is Stereolithography?
Stereolithography (SL/SLA) was the world’s first 3D printing technology, and it remains a great option for highly detailed prototypes that require tight tolerances and smooth surfaces. It uses a UV laser to cure and solidify fine layers of photopolymer in an open vat.
Why choose SLA?
SLA is great for prototyping parts that will ultimately be painted or coated because the models can be finished using the same materials and processes as the end product. Transparent, heat resistant and moisture resistant materials are also attractive for medical, automotive and other prototypes that call for flow visualization, light transmittance or thermostability.
Product designers opt for SL models when a quick build time is crucial, and they can invest time and resources into additional finishing processes. SL can also produce master patterns for urethane casting, and investment casting patterns that are used to produce metal parts for aerospace, automotive, power generation and medical applications.
