Thoughts on mix composition over time?

Post#1 » Tue Oct 20, 2015 4:13 pm

I've been experimenting with the 1:1 mix on a different printer and have hit or miss behavior over time.

I have two questions for those in the know:

1) If I have a perfectly mixed batch of 1:1 resin, how long will it stay in suspension before they start to separate and would the cherry fall to the bottom of the container? Or maybe cherry and red are the same resin chemicals except for the concentration of pigment?

2) Assuming that cherry and red are different in more than pigment, if I mix equal amounts and achieve a homogeneous mixture, is it safe to say during the UV exposure that an equal amount of cherry and red resin will cure from the mix? Can the mix ever move away from its 1:1 ratio?

Thanks,
Ron

They are the same except for pigmentation levels.

As long as u mix throughly before making the mix and before each print the ratio will not change.

That is good to hear. Takes one variable out of the old equation.

Right now I am focusing on my peel mechanism since I don't have the nice slider mechanism in the B9C. :D
