3D Printing Enhanced with MicroCare™ SSF Smoothing Station Fluid

The MicroCare SSF Smoothing Station Fluid is a nonflammable solvent with the unique property of being slightly unsafe for plastics. The fluid slightly melts the surface of the plastic parts and smooths the irregularities.

Key Benefits of the Smoothing Station Fluid—

  • Approved by Stratasys Corp. for use in their “Finishing Touch” Smoothing Station
  • Nonflammable for maximum safety
  • Better toxicity ratings that older fluids
  • Compatible with normal vapor degreasing processes

This fluid is very useful for removing surface irregularities in thermoplastic components produced by additive manufacturing (3D printing). Engineers, designers and manufacturers use smoothing systems to improve the surface finish of thermoplastic parts without the time and cost associated with traditional manufacturing techniques. The quality of the finished product is very close to injection molded quality. The product is compatible with metals but obviously plastics such as acrylic, ABS and polycarbonate may show signs of softening or swelling. This product is compatible with industrially-available plastic smoothing systems. The solvent is vapor degreaser compatible.
