Anhydrous ethanol is useful for cleaning components and the uncured liquid resins. Before printing, please learn how to purchase, operate, and dispose of it. Fill a little in the hand-held watering can to meet the printing needs.
Cleaning parts: Use the tools in the post-processing toolkit to clean the liquid resin on the finished parts.
Cleaning up the spilled resin: anhydrous ethanol can dissolve the liquid resin and used to clean up the spills. To avoid damage, please clean the small and carefully selected areas of the affected surfaces before using anhydrous ethanol or other detergents.
Anhydrous ethanol (industrial ethanol) has different names depending on where you are. We recommend that you purchase anhydrous ethanol at a concentration of over 90% from your local pharmacy or online. Higher concentrations of anhydrous ethanol are also available.
Be sure to refer to the safety data sheet (SDS) from anhydrous ethanol suppliers as your primary source of information. In a well-ventilated area, handle anhydrous ethanol with gloves. Keep it away from heat sources, sparks and sources of fire. Anhydrous ethanol evaporates quickly, so close the cleaning tank and the bottle as much as possible.
After a period of use, the resin dissolved in the anhydrous ethanol in your cleaning tank will become saturated, reducing the effectiveness of cleaning the new model. Please replace the used anhydrous ethanol and use the new one so that the finished model can achieve the best quality.
Flammable, should be used and stored away from the source of fire.
Store small amounts of used anhydrous ethanol in properly labeled and sealed containers. Consider using a funnel to pour used anhydrous ethanol into empty bottles.
For the printing operations which the solvent recovery system is not available, please note that the used anhydrous ethanol is safely and appropriately disposed according to the location of use:
Please inform the waste treatment service center that your bottle contains anhydrous ethanol with a small amount of Methacrylate monomer and oligomer (unpolymerized plastic resin) and a small amount of photoinitiator.
