Monocure 3D's FLEX100™ is a flexible 3D printing resin with an extremely high level of flexibility so you can 3D print compressible and bendable models.
The thinner the part, the more flexible it will be. FLEX100™ can be used on its own or by mixing with Monocure’s other resin to produce varying degrees of flexibility and firmness. By adding a small amount of FLEX100™ to Monocure’s other resins would create a less brittle and more durable part. By adding larger amounts, the more flexible it will become.
Remember to use scales to weigh the resins so results can be repeated. We recommend you make 100grams at a time to keep the ratios simple. For example, for a firm, durable resin try 25:75 mix – 25 grams of FLEX100™ to 75 grams of hard resin. For a very flexible version, you could try 90:10 mix 90 grams of FLEX100™ and 10 grams of hard resin.
IMPORTANT: When mixing FLEX100™ with our other resin systems, please ensure that you cure for a long enough time to fully cure the flexible resin. This is a slower curing resin and takes more UV exposure to fully cure. Although the part might look perfectly formed, if it hasn’t been cured for long enough, cracks may appear due to the resin being under cured.
All Monocure 3D resins have a very wide range of reactivity, UV wavelengths of 225nm to wavelengths of 420nm. By incorporating a blend of photo-initiators, monomers & sensitizers, almost any UV light source can be used to initiate the polymerisation process of our resins.
The Viscosity of FLEX100™ is 30-50 cps @ 25°C (Brookfield RVT).
All our resins have a low odour, have zero VOC emissions and display very low shrinkage properties <0.5%>
Please store Monocure 3D resin in a dark, cool place out of direct sunlight.
