DSM Somos® Element Stereolithography Polymer
Categories: Polymer; Rapid Prototyping Polymer

Material Notes: Product Description: Through continuous interaction with our customers, pattern makers and foundries, Somos® developed the groundbreaking stereolithography resin Somos® Element — the new standard for producing Investment Casting patterns. Somos® Element is an antimony-free stereolithography material that has been specifically designed to improve the repeatability and quality of 3D printed casting patterns. Patterns created with Somos® Element leave trace amounts of lightweight, easily-removable ash residue after burnout and have good green strength, so there’s no worry of breakage during handling, while being dimensionally stable during storage. Any residue that is left behind is easily removed, leaving a perfectly clean void in the ceramic mold. This translates into lower mold prep times and lower rates of rework, saving customers time and money.

Key Benefits:

  • Trace amounts of ash that are lightweight and easily removed
  • Suitable for high-end alloy castings
  • Rapid draining
  • Produces accurate, repeatable parts regardless of size
