Material Overview

Veroclear is a transparent photopolymer resin used in 3D printing, particularly compatible with Stratasys' PolyJet technology. It is renowned for its clarity and smooth, glass-like appearance, which can be further enhanced through post-processing techniques. Veroclear is often chosen for its ability to simulate clear plastics and glass, making it ideal for prototyping and design verification of transparent parts.

Mechanical Properties

The mechanical properties of Veroclear include good tensile strength and durability, with a balance of flexibility and stiffness. This makes it capable of withstanding moderate stress and impact without cracking or breaking. While it is not as flexible as some rubber-like materials, its rigidity is appropriate for applications requiring structural stability in a transparent material.

Chemical Compatibility

Chemically, Veroclear exhibits resistance to common non-aggressive chemicals and water. However, it may be susceptible to damage or degradation when exposed to strong solvents, acids, or bases. Its chemical stability is suitable for many indoor applications but may be limited in harsh chemical environments.

Thermal Properties

In terms of thermal properties, Veroclear can maintain its form and clarity at temperatures up to about 50-60°C. Beyond this, it may start to soften and lose its structural integrity, which limits its use in high-temperature applications.

Applications

The applications of Veroclear are diverse, primarily focusing on visual models and prototypes where transparency is key. It's used in automotive design for clear parts like light covers and indicators, in consumer products for packaging prototypes, and in medical models for simulating glass or transparent plastic components. Additionally, its clarity makes it suitable for creating complex models where internal structures need to be visible, such as fluid dynamics studies or educational models.
