Say Hello to VeroUltraClear, now available for Stratasys J750 and J735 users

All product designers always work towards one common goal when it comes to designing – pushing the boundaries of realism as much as possible. Many are tapping into 3D printing as it allows them to create models that feel like the finished product right from the start of concept design, and empowers them to make better and more accurate decisions.

But product realism isn’t always about the 3D printers, but also the materials that enable full-color, multi-textural models. The VeroUltraClear material makes it possible to create high clarity and finely detailed models that’s similar to glass in appearance. Designers can visualize internal model features and create concepts to verify the design of clear parts.

First released for the Stratasys J850 and J835 PolyJet 3D Printers last October, the industry’s clearest PolyJet material is now available to current users of Stratasys J750 and J735.

Designed specifically for prototyping, VeroUltraClear can simulate acrylic, achieving 86% of light transmission of that material – making it perfectly suitable for prototypes of glass, clear polymers, or transparent packaging.

That’s 11% clearer than original VeroClear material and nearly as transparent as glass at 90% light transmission. This is on top of the usual capabilities such as exceptional clarity alongside strength, stiffness and impact resistance.

*VeroUltraClear vs. the top 3 competitors on the market. This chart shows Stratasys’ superior optical properties on a 6mm (polished) sample cubes after varying lengths of photobleaching. Data was achieved on a X-Rite Analyzer which measures green to red(a) tint, blue to yellow(b) tint, lightness on a scale of 0 to 100(L) and transmittance percentage. Photobleaching cells were equipped with a LED 100W 6500 K lamp.

When it comes to competing clear materials in the market right now, VeroUltraClear surpasses them in clarity right out of the printer, with the closest competitor at 79% light transmittance.  Add some post-print photobleaching and you can increase clarity even further and virtually eliminate any yellowing.

Whether it’s 3D printed parts for tubing and piping, fluid analysis, package optimization, figurines, optically transparent material, lighting components, concept modeling that look and act like acrylic or glass, there’s only one “clear“ winner.
