Reynolds Advanced Materials announces that it now stocks XTC-3D brush-on coating for 3D printed parts at its 8 locations across the USA. It is a special liquid coating that fills striations and smooths the surface of any 3D print, eliminating 90% of post finishing work.
This is a two part liquid epoxy system that is measured 2 parts A to 1 part B by volume. Easy to mix and apply, the coating wets out uniformly without leaving brush strokes and cures in about 4 hours to a hard, impact resistant coating with a high gloss finish.
Lightly sanding the surface will give a matte finish. The part can then be and painted if desired. Adding color and metal effects is easy.
XTC-3D® can be applied to both SLA and SLS prints. It works with PLA, ABS, Laywoo, Powder Printed Parts and other rigid media. It can also be used to coat EPS, EPDM or urethane foams as well as wood, plaster, fabric, cardboard and paper. XTC-3D® is inexpensive, with 1 oz. will cover 100+ sq. inches. It does not contain VOC’s, phthalates or phosphates.
The Starter Kit (6.4 oz or 180 gm) retails for $10.48 and will cover many parts. It comes with XTC-3D resin (Parts A+B), measuring cups and stirring sticks. As with any specialty resin, you must follow directions carefully. Tips for using this product successfully are provided on the technical bulletin.
