PolyJuice water washable resin is a unique photopolymer resin; parts printed with our water washable resin can be cleaned simply using water instead of Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or similar solutions.
The use of water as a cleaning agent is a real game changer when it comes to resin 3D printing; eliminating the use of IPA and not only makes the post printing process simpler, cleaner and safer, but also reduces cost and time.
Main advantages of our water washable resin:
- Parts can be cleaned up easily using water, no IPA required.
- Dry, smooth and non-tacky surface finish. No UV curing necessary.
- Exceptionally high detail.
- Fast ("Rapid") layer curing times.
- Super low odor.
- Stronger than standard resins.
- Works well with color pigments.

During our tests on numerous printers, we've found the parameters below to be a suitable and helpful starting point that should work on most LCD resin printers and produce good results. Please note however that printing parameters vary from machine to machine and may still need to be adjusted and fine tuned for optimal results. If you need assistance, our team will be more than happy to help you get properly setup to print this resin, please feel free to contact us anytime.

Water Washing & Post Treatment:
Parts can be washed/rinsed using simple tap water. For faster and more thorough cleaning we recommend using warm water inside an ultrasonic cleaner. After washing, air dry or use pressurized air.
No other steps are necessary after water rinsing and air drying. UV curing is optional although we found it unnecessary since the prints dry to a clean, smooth and non-tacky surface finish.
Please wash your model over a vessel and not directly over a sink. Waste water will contain traces of uncured resin and should not be disposed of down the drain. Please see below for recommended disposal instructions of waste water.
Disposal & Toxicity:
We are currently testing the materials for aqua-toxicity and biodegradability. Until official results are available, we recommend that any uncured material should be treated as a chemical and disposed of in accordance with local environmental regulations.
Waste water: We recommend placing the waste water under UV light or simply have it left outdoors for several days in order to cure any resin traces. The solidified resin can then be simply sifted out and disposed of as normal solid waste.
