Frosted Ultra Detail and Frosted Extreme Detail are both made of a UV cured acrylic polymer. While both offer high resolution, Frosted Extreme Detail uses a 16 micron layer height to produce incredibly fine features, making it a great choice for miniatures, model trains, and products with very fine embossed or engraved details. Both materials are well suited for painting, and are relatively brittle, especially when features are thin. The material is heat resistant up to 80°C / 176°F degrees.
Frosted Detail plastics are watertight, not foodsafe, not recyclable, and not dishwasher safe. Detail plastics are heatproof to 80℃ / 176℉ degrees. Higher temperatures may significantly change material properties.
