PROTO GLASS

HOW DOES PROTO GLASS WORK?

Oxygen Inhibition occurs when environmental oxygen reacts with free radicals released during during the process of UV curing. The reaction of Oxygen with free radicals creates stable peroxy radicals and prevents the free radicals from starting the crosslinking chain reaction that makes the resin a solid.

The results of Oxygen Inhibition are simply an incomplete cure. This can create a sticky or tacky surface and produce cosmetic or structural defects.

Proto Glass creates physical barrier in between your part and oxygen in the environment to prevent Oxygen Inhibition. Apply an even, thin layer of Proto Glass to your part with a brush and then cure for a smooth, consistent build.

Proto Glass is a revolutionary new product developed by JETT Labs.

Platform Primer for difficult materials

Apply a thin coating of Proto Glass to your build platform before building with challenging resin, and your parts will stick!

BUILD LINE LEVELING

Proto Glass can also be used as a leveling material to create a very smooth surface on a most parts. Make sure your part is 100% clean of all oils, contaminants, finger prints, etc... Without touching the part with your hands, dip, spray or brush on a thin layer to areas you want to smooth or the entire part. Remove excess by compressed air or mechanical movement. Do not use "Canned Air" as it contains butane. Do not touch the coated part before it is post-cured. Hang your part on a thin wire rack and place in your UV cure unit and cure for about 10 minutes at 36 watts UV.Proto Glass does not experience "Oxygen Inhibition" so there is no need for inert gas or curing under liquid.

DIRECT CASTING BARRIER

Proto Glass is effective for direct investment casting applications of UV resin parts. Dip your post cured parts in Proto Glass so that every surface of the part is submerged. Remove excess by compressed air or mechanical movement. Do not use "Canned Air" as it contains butane. Do not touch the coated part before it is post-cured. Hang your part on a thin wire rack and place in your UV cure unit and cure for about 10 minutes at 36 watts UV. Proto Glass does not experience "Oxygen Inhibition" so there is no need for inert gas or curing under liquid. Once cured, attach your feed sprue and invest according to resin casting directions.
