Lenses, packaging, wind tunnel testing and water flow analysis are some of the applications where both water resistance and good dimensional stability are key. WaterShed® XC 11122 is Paragon’s resin of choice for these types of applications. WaterShed® XC is a low viscosity liquid photopolymer that produces strong, tough, water-resistant, ABS-like parts. Most importantly parts created with WaterShed 11122 are nearly colourless, and look more like true, clear engineered plastic. In addition, WaterShed XC has been formulated with the DSM Somos Oxetane Advantage™— an advanced chemistry platform that produces parts with outstanding water resistance and high dimensional stability.
WaterShed XC 11122 offers many properties that mimic traditional engineering plastics including ABS and PBT. This makes the material ideal for many applications in the automotive, medical and consumer electronics markets.
