Make the most of your material with simple, efficient powder recycling.

What is refresh rate?

The ability of an SLS 3D printer to print with a mix of new and recycled powder. The powder refresh rate is the minimum ratio of fresh powder required to print and may vary based on the material used, packing density, and parts printed.

Refresh Rate

70%

Recycled Powder

How it works

Just set the desired refresh rate on the touchscreen and the Fuse Sift powder recovery station will automatically mix and dose powder to be reused in future prints.

Handling & Safety

Handling & Safety

Resin should be handled with care. Proper handling will ensure safe printing and efficient use. Our resins have been designed to be similar or safer to handle as other household chemicals or adhesives. Formlabs materials do not contain volatile solvents so special ventilation is not required. Skin contact should be avoided.

The Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are up to date for every resin product and follow the latest government guidelines. Always consult the SDS as the primary source of information to understand safety and handling of Formlabs materials. For more information about handling resin, learn more tips for resin maintenance in our Help Center.
