Rigid resin is a glass-reinforced photopolymer that offers a high level of detail, stiffness, and deformation resistance.
Rigid resin is a 3D printing material that is reinforced with glass to provide high stiffness and a polished finish. It is specifically designed to offer excellent resistance to deformation over time, making it suitable for printing thin walls and intricate features. The material exhibits characteristics comparable to other glass-filled thermoplastics.
Compared to other resin materials, parts printed with rigid resin demonstrate superior resistance to mechanical stress over an extended period. However, it's important to note that due to its high stiffness, rigid resin parts are more brittle than parts printed with tough or durable resin.
The technical properties of rigid resin are as follows:
|Tensile Strength||35.6 - 69 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||2100 - 10000 MPa|
|Tensile Elongation||1 - 20%|
|Flexural Strength||84 - 126 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||2200 - 9000 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||65 - 163°C|
|HDT (1.8 MPa)||55 - 82°C|
These values represent the material's mechanical properties and behavior under different loading conditions. Tensile strength measures the material's resistance to breaking under tension, while tensile modulus indicates its stiffness. Tensile elongation represents the material's ability to stretch before breaking. Flexural strength measures its ability to withstand bending forces, and flexural modulus represents its flexural stiffness. HDT (Heat Deflection Temperature) indicates the temperature at which the material begins to deform under specific loads.
Please note that the provided values are approximate ranges and can vary depending on specific printing parameters and conditions. It is recommended to consult the manufacturer's documentation for precise and up-to-date technical specifications for rigid resin.
