Somos® WaterShed Black provides a solution to build rigid, tough parts, while eliminating the need for painting or coating. With similar properties and processing as Somos® WaterShed XC 11122, this multipurpose resin provides the same benefits in a black stereolithography material. Somos® WaterShed Black boasts faster processing times and eliminates the need for painting or coating - a true time and resource saver.
With its improved formulation, Somos® WaterShed Black has up to 50% faster processing speed than alternative black resins, offering minimal finishing and more consistent processing over time. It offers a truer black color off the machine vs. others currently available resins. This material also has a smooth surface finish, as well as superior moisture and chemical resistance.
