Technical specifications:
Printed in DSM Somos® Watershed XC 11122 using Stereolithography (SLA) technology.

Technology highlights:
As one of the industry’s most popular materials, Somos® WaterShed XC 11122 is the obvious solution for numerous applications. Whether you’re a designer looking for highly detailed parts with superior clarity and water resistance, or an engineer focusing on durability for functional testing, Somos® WaterShed XC 11122 mimics the look and feel of clear thermoplastics, such as ABS and PBT.

Information and use cases:
Somos® Watershed XC 11122 was used to create a 3D printed inlet manifold that allowed one of the world’s leading automotive engine manufacturers, Rausch Yates Engines, to test the design durability. In addition, the clarity allowed them to see fuel build-up during testing which enables design changes to be made prior final part production. This has provided Rausch Yates with a competitive edge and shortened their development cycle.
