I have been successful with SI-40 for sanopreme. Melt temperature up to
and not exceeding 500 degrees F. Contact temperature was down around 270
degrees F. Anything higher than that gave thermo cracking to the SLA
material. Cycling was around 2 1/2 minutes and I ran the mold cold. For
you first mold run 4 degrees draft on your mold. Yes, that is allot.
Good luck and let us know how you make out.

What is the experience of the list members when it comes to SLA resins
for rapid tooling? What would you recommend for a low pressure
injection molding application where the injected polymer temperature is
350 F.
Does the ZPrinter material filled with epoxy have a chance at working at
this temperature?
