VeroUltraClear

Rigid Transparency

VeroUltraClear™ is a transparent PolyJet™ digital material offering exceptional clarity combined with strength, stiffness and impact resistance.

VeroUltraClear simulates PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate), commonly known as acrylic, achieving 86% light transmission through a 6 mm thick sample. VeroUltraClear has a higher level of clarity and transparency and a lower yellow index than standard VeroClear™. Thermal properties are similar but mechanical properties are somewhat lower than VeroClear.

PolyJet™ Technology

Advantages of 3D printing VeroUltraClear with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine

Proven Technology

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set  the standard for finished-product realism. Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details  and smooth surfaces possible.

Advanced 3D Printing

PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light. The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.

Better ideas, easier sell

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers improve communication and collaboration because they produce amazingly  accurate representations of your ideas that you can share with your team and your clients for a faster, more confident buy-in.
