Stereolithography (SLA) - Accura® SL 5530

Description

The Accura® SL 5530 is a high-performance resin material used for stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing. Developed by DSM, a global science-based company, this resin is specifically designed for high-throughput production and manufacturing applications. Accura® SL 5530 offers excellent durability, toughness, and accuracy while maintaining a high degree of detail, making it an ideal material for creating functional prototypes, concept models, and end-use parts. It can be used for a wide range of applications in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, and medical. This resin is also suitable for post-processing and finishing, enabling designers and engineers to create high-quality, functional parts that meet their needs. Its low shrinkage rate, stability, and surface finish make it a reliable and consistent material for 3D printing.
