Material Overview

Accura ClearVue is a versatile and transparent material known for its high clarity and glass-like appearance. Accura ClearVue is favored for its aesthetic qualities, especially in applications requiring visual transparency. This material is often chosen for its ability to simulate acrylic or glass, making it suitable for a wide range of prototyping and design applications.

Mechanical Properties

This material is characterized by its good tensile strength and durability. It exhibits a balance of rigidity and flexibility, making it resistant to breaking under strain. However, it is not as strong or impact-resistant as some other 3D printing materials, which limits its use in structural applications. Its moderate hardness and ability to withstand minor impacts make it suitable for functional prototypes and design models where some degree of strength is required.

Chemical Compatibility

Chemically, Accura ClearVue shows good resistance to moisture and is not easily degraded by water. It is also resistant to a range of mild chemicals, although it may not perform well when exposed to strong solvents or corrosive substances. This chemical stability contributes to its durability and longevity, especially in controlled environments where exposure to harsh chemicals is minimal.

Thermal Properties

Accura ClearVue can withstand moderate temperatures but may deform or lose clarity at high temperatures. It is not ideal for applications where the material will be subjected to extreme heat or thermal cycling. However, for room temperature applications or those involving only mild temperature variations, Accura ClearVue maintains its properties well.

Applications

Accura ClearVue is widely used in applications that require visual transparency and a glass-like appearance. Common uses include the production of clear prototypes, architectural models, medical models, and components for consumer products. Its ability to mimic glass and acrylic makes it ideal for visualizing internal features in complex assemblies or for creating aesthetically appealing models that closely resemble final products.
