VeroClear – Transparent

Transparent materials are widely used in injection moulding but there are few options available for transparent rapid prototypes.  Veroclear is rigid and colourless and offers excellent dimensional stability for fine detail model building and visual simulation of transparent thermoplastics such as Acrylic.

It is possible to combine the transparent and black materials to create different shades and patterns such as dots and grids and for simulating print.

This materials is ideal for:

  • Form and fit testing of clear or see-through parts
  • Glass, eye-wear and lighting covers
  • Visualisation of liquid flow
  • Medical applications
  • Artistic and exhibition modelling

To create optically clear parts VeroClear does require some post processing. Unfortunately Rutland Plastics is unable to provide this as a service.
