Product Information

Please use our Resin Compatibility form to find out which resin is best suited to your 3D printer. We have tested our resin with a number of DLP 3D printers and have not had many compatibility issues. Monocure 3D resin has a very wide range of reactivity, UV wavelengths of 225nm to wavelengths of 420nm. Contact us if you are not sure and we can offer you some guidance.


Please check out the Printer Settings page for the optimal settings for your printer whilst using Monocure 3D resins. 

Our Rapid Resin has been developed for low powered LED DLP type printers (like the Wanhao D7, Anycubic Photon & Wow Sparkmaker) so it can have faster layer curing times. The STANDARD resin will cure at layer speeds of 15-20 seconds, while the RAPID will cure at 5-8 Seconds depending on the layer thickness. 

FLEX100™ can be used on its own or by mixing with our Rapid/Standard colour range to produce varying degrees of flexibility and firmness. Adding a small amount of FLEX100™ to the resin would create a less brittle and more durable part. The more FLEX100™ added the more flexible it will become.

IMPORTANT: When mixing FLEX100 with RAPID RESIN please ensure that you cure for a long enough time to fully cure the flexible resin. This is a slower curing resin and takes more UV exposure to fully cure. Parts make look perfectly formed but cracks may appear overtime if the resin is under cured.

This is usually a sign that the layers have not been cured long enough. Please increase your layer time. You can also help by decreasing the layer height.

Open the twist top dispenser and squeeze a small line of PLATEBOND™ across one end of the build plate. Use a paint scraper to smear the product across the entire build-plate surface. The PLATEBOND™ will combine with the first two base layers of resin and help the 3D model adhere to the build plate thanks to the advanced formulation. This product is safe to use and highly recommended before every print. 

The resin can be used an unlimited number of times. Be sure to finely strain after each use, and kept away from any UV light source, including sunlight. Also, it is important not to contaminate the resin with foreign liquids such as water, IPA, dust, dirt or other particles.

Our resin should be washed up using Monocure 3D RESINAWAY or IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol), dried with compressed air or lint-free cloth, post-cured under a 405nm UV light and then rinsed with running water. Spills should be cleaned up using RESINAWAY or IPA, followed by water, with absorbent cloths to assist. When handling the resin you should always wear gloves and safety glasses. Be careful not to get the resin on your skin as it may cause a slight irritation (see SDS for more details). 

You can pour the used ResinAway into a tray and place in the sun. This will allow the liquid to evaporate, then any solids remaining can be thrown away in the normal garbage. Alternatively, please follow your local governing body’s guidelines for solvent disposal. 

In the container that it came in and in a dark, cool place indoors. Also, ensure the lid is on securely & never allow it to have prolonged exposure to the sun. If stored correctly the resin should last 24 months. After this period, if you give the resin a good shake and see particles in the resin then it is time to dispose of it.

Good question! We believe that this should be OK on most occasions, but we can’t guarantee that the resin will act as promised if you mix the colours. It is important to understand that different colours require varying amounts of photo-initiator, so when mixing some colours there may be problems with curing and the durability of the resin once it is cured. We would suggest you only mix enough to make a small ‘test’ model to ensure it will work as expected. We will not refund resins that have been mixed, so this will be done at your own risk! Alternatively, you can purchase our CMYK pigment set to create custom resin colours.

Monocure 3D resin has a very wide range of reactivity, UV wavelengths of 225nm to wavelengths of 420nm. For best results we recommend 405nm. By incorporating a blend of photo-initiators, monomers & sensitizers, almost any light source can be used to initiate the polymerization process of our resins.

DLP 3D printers will cure the resin to about 90-95% after printing is complete, leaving the surface feeling tacky. The best way to ‘post-cure’ the resin is to put your 3D printed model into a UV light box at 405nm after cleaning up with RESINAWAY or IPA. For best results and to avoid the parts turning cloudy, after RESINAWAY wash, use compressed air to remove excess, then use a 405nm LED light. Please be aware that the lower range of UV (255 – 400nm) may cause the part to cure with a yellow tinge. If you don’t have a LED UV light and are using the sun for post-curing, it’s important to remember to only expose for 2-3 mins on each side to avoid the part turning yellow. 


Straight off the printer the surface of the resin is still a bit soft, uncured and is not water soluble. When you place the printed part in water or IPA, it causes it to go cloudy. Instead, use Monocure 3D RESINAWAY for wash up, then ensure excess is removed by using compressed air or dabbing with a lint-free cloth. Place in UV light box for post curing.
