Frosted Detail and Frosted Ultra Detail are UV cured acrylic polymer that is capable of incredibly fine details that are perfect for miniatures, model trains, and anything that requires a smooth and detailed finish. Particularly, if you intend to paint your model, the detail will really pop. Frosted Ultra Detail is brittle, especially around the minimum wall thickness. Thicker walls will result to stronger models. The material is slightly flexible and heat resistant up to 80/176 degrees C/F.
Due to the printing process, we need to place support material below the model. This support material can create small print lines in some parts, particularly if the part has flat surfaces. These print lines are small and not highly noticeable, however they will be exaggerated when painted. Take a look at the picture above to see the print lines, the scale of the ruler below is in centimeters.
This material is printed using the Multijet Modeling (MJM) process. Molten plastic is deposited onto an aluminum build platform in layers using several nozzles, essentially like a large print that sweeps across the build layer. As the heated material jets onto the build plate, it solidifies instantly. After each layer is deposited, it is cured, or polymerized, by a wide area UV lamp. The next layer then applied, and through this repeated process layers of thermoplastic build up into a model. When printing is finished, we remove the models from the tray and put them into an oven that melts away the wax support material. Next, we put the models into an a ultrasonic oil bath to remove any remaining wax residues, and then a ultrasonic water bath to remove any oil on the model. Finally, we inspect the models and dry them by hand.
This material is watertight, not dishwasher safe, not recyclable, and not foodsafe. It is heatproof to 80C/176F degrees. Higher temperatures may significantly change material properties.
