Sweden’s leading prototyping and part production service bureau, Prototal AB, recently turned to RenShape® SL 7810 photopolymer stereolithography (SL) material from Huntsman Advanced Materials to build a functional prototype of an infrared camera.
RenShape® SL 7810 photopolymer is a white, ABS-like resin that yields accurate, durable parts with a high-quality surface finish. The photopolymer combines good impact strength with long-term dimensional stability, even at temperatures of up to 104° F (40° C) and 90% humidity. The product also is easy to process in Prototal’s SLA® 5000 equipment, with low viscosity and high green strength. Cured and painted SL prototypes could be completed in just one week before being shipped out for field-testing and customer approval.
