Solidator 3D Printer - Materials

Advanced Materials for Engineering Parts

Materials – Photopolymers

Solidator works with liquid plastic materials (similar to nail polish) that harden when exposed to strong visible light. We work with partners that provide these materials to you directly. We have developed a special liquid plastic resin mix with our resin providers.


R010 Solidator Black Material (High-Speed Industrial Part Printing) – 165 EUR / KG

Ideal resin for industrial parts used in products you ship. In comparison to R001 it is less brittle while having the same hardness. Shore 82 D after post cure.

Since June 2017, we use Solidator Black for all parts of our machines that are 3d printed. Cure time is 7.5 seconds, so it is even faster than R001.



R031 Solidator Gray Functional Material – 185 EUR /kg
This material is used for parts that need to be hard and a bit bendable (e.g. snap-fit designs). In contrast to R001 it is pretty shock resistant and bendable.
This allows also simplified assembly by bending parts instead of screwing them together. It needs uv post curing.


R001 Professional Transparent Orange Resin (High-Speed Prototyping) – 130 EUR/kg

This is the standard material on the Solidator DLP Printer. It cures extremly fast and is a hard Plexiglas like material. The Solidator Professional Transparent Orange resin is extremely hard. The hardness of the printed parts (at 0.1 mm layer height) is around 85D (shore hardness)—this is about the same value as PLA (about 85D), harder than ABS (about 75D) and certainly harder than POM (about 80D). The melting point of the printed parts is about 110°C (230°F). The layer cure time of this material is around 6- 12 seconds on the Solidator V2.


R020 Solidator Metal Casting Material– 175 EUR/kg

The Solidator Metal Casting Material is optimized for casting larger parts to metals. It has good burn out capabilities:

In the investment casting process (more info here)   a model is printed in a burnable material (R020) then coated with ceramics
in order to make a mold. in that mold later on hot metal is filled in which burns out the model and takes the shape
of the model. The layer cure time of this material is around 15 seconds on the Solidator V2.




R040 Solidator Heat Resistant Material – 165 EUR / KG
This material is high temperature resistant material which support a heat deflection temperature up to 140°C. It can be used for molds and technical parts that are exposed to heat and need to keep their shape thereby.  This resin was developed to withstand heat and pressure of vulcanizing models in rubber without any loss of dimensional stability. The material provides high toughness and high heat deflection temperature. Applications include RTV Silicone moulding. Cure time is 9  seconds This material needs post curing.Without post cure the hardness is Shore 65 D.



Finishing and Coloring

Post-Curing the materials is not needed except for Functional Resin (X-Green).
Resin settings are fixed in our software for each supported resin — so you do not need to test all this yourself.
You can spray-paint these materials easily to get any color and multi-color parts with acrylic spray paint.
