Safety with Asiga DLP 3D printers
When operating an Asiga printer be sure to always wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as required.
The following symbols are used frequently on our Customer Support pages.
Asiga 3D printers house high-powered UV LED’s.
Protective eyewear must be worn at all times when switching on the LED manually.
Never look directly into the light source as this could cause vision loss.
98% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) is recommended for washing parts after printing.
Asiga printers require photo reactive liquid polymer resin.
When handling 3D printing material (photopolymers) refer to the material Safety Datasheet (SDS) and Instructions For Use (IFU) for correct material handling.
Please see our Materials tab for more information on ASIGA resin before printing.
General safety: Always consult the SDS as the primary source of information to understand safety and handling of Asiga materials.
Seek medical attention if eye contact occurs.
If skin contact occurs, wash the area thoroughly with cold soapy water.
Asiga printers require little preventative maintenance. Follow all instructions and safety advisories before attempting any maintenance on a printer.
