Prototech Engineering Offers WaterClear Prototypes

Willowbrook, IL., December 11, 2001 – Prototech Engineering, Inc. today
announced the availability of clear stereolithography prototypes made
from Somos 10120 WaterClear resin.

“Our clients are delighted with the clarity and durability of the
prototypes made from this material,” said Bobby Bishop Jr., VP
Engineering and Technology. “With tensile strength similar to ABS and
impact strength similar to Nylon 66, WaterClear is ideal for any
situation where robust, clear prototypes are desirable.”

WaterClear prototypes have the optical clarity of polycarbonate and may
be dyed in a wide variety of colors. Typical applications include engine
components, power tools, light pipes, bottles, clear containers, lenses
and applications where the visualization of internal components is

“With this new material, we can deliver clear prototypes in a fraction
of the time, and at a fraction of the cost of using soft or hard
tooling,” said Tim Bush, Executive Vice President at Prototech
Engineering. “In addition to its clarity, WaterClear is an excellent
general-purpose resin with outstanding mechanical properties. It's the
perfect complement to our existing line of rigid, flexible, and
semi-flexible resins.”
