Introduction

Castable Resin

Somos® Element is a new antimony-free stereolithography 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.

Key Benefits
Very clean burnout with low residual ash
Low viscosity
Dimensionally stable
