Somos® Element: The investment casting material
Key Benefits for 3D Printing
- Very clean burnout with low residual ash
- Low viscosity
- Dimensionally stable
Somos® Element is a new antimony-free SL material that has been specifically created to improve the repeatability and quality of 3D printed casting patterns.
Patterns created with Somos® Element have strong green strength, are dimensionally stable during storage and leave a minimal amount of ash residue after burnout. Any residue that is left behind is easily removed, leaving a perfectly clean void in the ceramic mold. This translates into less mold prep and lower rates of rework saving customers time and money.
