VeroClear™ and VeroUltraClear™ are transparent PolyJet™ digital materials offering exceptional clarity combined with strength, stiffness and impact resistance.
VeroClearn and VeroUltraClear simulate PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate), commonly known as acrylic, achieving 86% light transmission through a 6 mm thick sample.
VeroUltraClear has a higher level of clarity and transparency and a lower yellow index than standard VeroClear™. Thermal properties are similar but mechanical properties are somewhat lower than VeroClear.

Learn more about the benefits of PolyJet printed parts
PolyJet is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces smooth, accurate parts, prototypes and tooling.
With microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 0.1 mm, it can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials available with any technology.
Typical applications include concept models and prototypes for eyewear, lighting components, and the replication of glass and clear polymers. Other uses include modeling clear tubes and housings for pumps and gearboxes to view fluid flow and internal mechanisms.

Advantages of PolyJet Technology
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine
Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set the standard for finished-product realism.
Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details and smooth surfaces possible.
PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light.
The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.
