The Form Cure has precise temperature control, which is important for successful post-curing your prints. The chamber of the Form Cure can reach up to 80°C. The Form Cure also has 13 LEDs, which emit 405nm light to trigger the post-curing reaction. This results in optimal results.
Last, the Form Cure also has a rotating turntable, forced-air heating and multi-directional LED’s to reach the best prints.
What is Post-Curing?
During post-curing, exposure to 405 nm light triggers the formation of additional chemical bonds within a printed part, making the material stronger and stiffer. Heat accelerates this process and enables more complete bond formation for a fast and highly effective post-cure resulting in optimal material properties.
Post-curing improves the material properties of all resins:
- Standard resins increase in strength
- Engineering resins reach peak performance
- Castable resins burn out more cleanly
- Biocompatible resins require post cure
