New Medical Approved SLA ResinPosted on: 18th March, 2009. Filed Under: News
Laser Prototypes (Europe) Ltd has added another functional resin to the wide range of Stereolithography materials available to customers.
The ISO approved Watershed XC11222 is the very latest totally clear resin from DSM Somos and delivers exceptional functionality and versatility in parts that look like true, clear engineered plastic. This also makes it particularly suited to medical device housings and fluid flow analysis models. And with the recent medical USP Class VI AND ISO approval, it can also be used in a wide range of biomedical or skin contact applications and clinical trials.
The addition of the new resin means that Laser Prototypes now offer SLA models built on three in house machines in a choice of 7 resins ranging from the very tough to flexible and functional as well as ceramic filled and water clear, all depending on customer requirements.
“The ISO and USP Class VI medical approval is an exciting move forward for us in resin technology. We have had a lot of interest from our medical clients on this â even an advance order for clinical trial models from one client! Many others want to discuss upcoming projects so we anticipate a lot of demand for both resins over the coming months” Campbell Evans (Sales Director).
