Isopropanol is used to remove and dissolve uncured resin from printed items.
Isopropanol is a highly volatile, flammable, colorless, clear liquid that is used in FDM 3D printing for cleaning components, build plates, and for smoothing certain materials. For SLA and DLP prints Isopropanol can be used to remove and dissolve uncured resin from 3D prints. Because of its rapid evaporation, it dries quickly. Therefore, the container should not be open longer than necessary.
DANGER: Highly flammable liquid and vapor. Causes serious eye irritation. May cause drowsiness or dizziness. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. — No smoking. Keep container tightly closed. IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Dispose of contents/container in accordance with national regulations.
For cleaning build plates and components
For good results diluted to 70% isopropanol and 30% distilled water.
For smoothing FDM 3D prints
Follow the instructions of the smoothing device manufacturer.
For removing uncured Resin from SLA or DLP
Wear gloves to handle resin cleaner. Submerging the finished print in the resin cleaner for 1 to 5 minutes. Check every minute on the pro- cess and shake the model in the solution to enhance the removal. After the successful removal of uncured resin, let the model dry and cure according to manufacturer guidelines.
