How to make Simple Clear transparent

To make prints made with Simple Clear resin transparent after cleaning, you can follow these steps:

Step 1: Clean the Prints
Clean the prints made with Simple Clear resin using a mild soap and water solution. Rinse them thoroughly with water and allow them to dry completely.

Step 2: Prepare the Surface
Before you begin, ensure that the surface of the prints is clean and dry. Use a hair dryer to remove any water droplets on the surface until it is completely dry.

Step 3: Apply a Water-Based Coating
Apply a thin layer of water-based coating with a spray gun. Make sure to apply it thinly and evenly. Allow it to dry naturally at room temperature for about 2 minutes.

Step 4: Repeat the Coating Process
Repeat the coating process two more times, applying thinly every 2 minutes, and then let it dry naturally at room temperature. You can do multiple spraying operations until the transparency meets your expectations. We repeated this operation about three times, a total of 6 minutes.

Step 5: Inspect the Prints
Inspect the prints to ensure that they are transparent to your liking. If you are satisfied with the level of transparency, your prints are now ready to use.

How to make prints made with Simple Clear  resin transparent after cleaning


It is important to dry the prints completely before applying the water-based coating to ensure proper adhesion.
Avoid using lacquer-based coating agents as they dry too quickly, and the solvent will evaporate before penetrating the interior.
Do not use a heating drying oven as it can affect the transparency of the prints. Allow the water-based coating to penetrate the resin as much as possible, delay the drying process and penetration speed, fully penetrate and improve transparency.

It does not need to be cured first before sealing? Only water-washed?
