Somos® QuickGen 500

Fast-printing, general purpose resin for DLP/LCD printing

The best flexible prototyping resin

Digital light processing (DLP) and liquid crystal display (LCD) 3D printing technology generally boasts faster print speeds and lower capital investment. Combined with Somos® QuickGen 500, companies looking to manufacture locally can more quickly and easily adopt 3D printing.

Somos® QuickGen 500 is a fast-printing DLP/LCD material with a print speed 2x faster than similar materials. It offers accurate printing for general and functional prototypes.

Somos® QuickGen 500 has unique flexibility; it is more flexible than other resins, but stiffer than elastomers, offering both flexibility and spring back. The material has substantial elongation and a lower modulus with no significant strain rate dependence on elongation at break. This results in consistent performance independent of how quickly force or strain are applied. Many flexible materials show greater influence from the rate of applied force.

An economical resin, Somos® QuickGen 500 can quickly produce high volumes due to its high printing speeds and fast post-processing.
