Our new Magna Translucent is specially formulated for making objects with high tensile strength and hardness, fast. The resin is optimised for mass manufacture, being both very fast to print and fast to post expose, delivering a dry surface finish. Magna Translucent can be printed at up to 350 µm layers (geometry dependent).

Photocentric's Magna Translucent daylight resin has been created for producing hard objects with a high tensile strength. Objects cannot be bent or compressed easily. The printed parts will exhibit exceptional tensile strength and elongation comparable to polyimide. The rigid parts produced show minimal shrinkage along with great accuracy. Daylight Magna Translucent provides excellent imaging in your desktop Liquid Crystal printer. You will experience the benefits of fast exposure times and a wide exposure latitude, allowing you to hold the finest details your machine can provide. The solid material is strong, durable, and long lasting provided it is stored in dry conditions away from strong UV light.
Follow the procedures laid out in your 3D Liquid Crystal´s user manual. Polymer should be poured into the vat away from direct sunlight. Polymer can be reused but should be poured through a filter to remove solid lumps. Keep the Magna door closed to prevent accidentally curing resin. Liquid polymer is soluble in water and soap however we recommend Photocentric's Resin Cleaner, or IPA, followed by water. The cleaned objects should be post exposed at 70°C under UV for a minimum of 1 hour to obtain the maximum properties. Alternatively, the parts can be post exposed in clean warm water under UV for 1 hour.
