Turquoise resin for the easy 3D printing of parts with high flexibility and soft to the touch.

One of the resins from the Liqcreate catalog of premium 3D printing resins is the Premium Flex resin for LCD/MSLA and DLP 3D printing. The Premium Flex photopolymer resin produces parts that are extremely flexible, elastic and soft to the touch.

The Premium Flex resin has a stunning translucent turquoise blue color and it is characterized by great printability. Thanks to the wide range of compatible light sources (385-420 nm), it can be used on many open source MSLA/LCD and DLP 3D printers by brands like Uniz, Anycubic, Creality or Phrozen. The full list of compatible printers is available here.

Flexible resins are by nature a bit more challenging to work with. This is why it is recommended to consult the Liqcreate guide to 3D printing with their flexible resins. The guide, available on the Liqcreate support page, provides tips on how to orient the part, what support settings to use, and how to avoid stickiness while in the post-processing of the part.

In order to ensure resin longevity and successful 3D prints, it is advised to store the Premium Flex resin in a clean and dry environment, out of direct sunlight and in a temperature of 5-30 ºC. Before use, the resin bottle should be shaken energetically for at least 1 minute (at least 3 minutes in the case of filled resins) and then left to rest for around 10 minutes to let the air bubble escape. Leftover resin can be poured back into the bottle but it should be first filtered to ensure there is no polymer residue present. Safety equipment such as protective garments, gloves and face protection is highly recommended for the handling of resin.

As far as the post-processing of the Premium Flex resin, a few simple steps must be followed. First, the 3D printed part has to be cleaned for a maximum of 6 minutes in Liqcreate Resin Cleaner, IPA alcohol or bioethanol, preferably ultrasonic or under agitation. Then the completely dried part has to be cured in a high-power UV curing chamber. The curing workflow is explained in detail by the manufacturer here. It absolutely crucial that the parts are dry before they are cured. The curing of wet or sticky parts will lead to mechanical and surface defects. The drying can be done by simply leaving the cleaned part in a well ventilated area for at least 30 minutes or with the help of pressurized air (2 minutes) for parts cleaned in IPA alcohol or ethanol.

More useful resources such as tips on how to use support structures with the Liqcreate resins, or on how to color, age or mix the resins can be found on the Liqcreate support page. On the Liqcreate website the user can also find a guide on how to process flexible 3D printing resins.
