    Additional information
    Weight 0.1 kg

    Shake well before each use. Slowly drip the pigment solution into Monocure 3D resin and mix well until desired colour is reached. To obtain the same colour density of our pigmented Rapid Resin, you will need to add approximately 4ml of the pigment dispersion. Adding too much pigment can result in slower curing times and potentially inhibit the cure completely.

    The pigment solution can be added to our white resin or clear depending on the finish you are after. When adding to the white base resin an opaque finish will result. If you add to the clear resin a transparent look will result. The more pigment you add, the more solid the colour will become.

    Please be extremely cautious when handling the pigments as they will stain very easily.

    Pigment dispersions are safe to use, but it is always recommended to read and understand the safety and technical information before use.

    High Tensile Strength
    When measuring the Tensile strength of our material, the pressure is applied to it gradually until it gives. TUFF™ resin has a much higher rating than most resins on the market.

    Hard Surface Finish
    A hard surface rating of Shore D 92,  without being brittle, gives TUFF™ its unique properties. When post-cured, the smooth surface finish is perfect for painting if required.

    Longevity & Durability
    It’s important that your model lasts the test of time, we have done comprehensive aging tests and TUFF™ has passed with flying colours.

    The Offical Test Figures
    We had an independent lab do this report on our TUFF™ resin, printed at different heights and with varying cure times. You can download the test report here.

    RAPID TUFF Resin


    rapid tuff resin

    Monocure 3D TUFF™ resin is a unique blend of advanced urethanes. It was specifically developed to produce a 3D printed model with high tensile strength and long-life durability. These properties provide the right balance of fine detail, strength, flexibility and a hard surface finish.

    We recommend using TUFF™  resin if you intend to 3D print models that you want to remain rigid and hard yet withstand stress and strain without being brittle. Once post-cured, it can be machined, painted or polished for further finishing.

    Our development team has created TUFF™ resin to be low in viscosity (thinner), so it doesn’t require heating like other resins on the market. Thinner materials can reduce the build-up of resin that can get trapped behind supports.

    TUFF™ has a low odour formula to suit confined spaces such as home offices, garages and family living spaces.

    Tensile Strength (MPa)


    The tensile modulus of a solid material is a mechanical property that measures stiffness.


    Tensile elongation is the stretching that a material undergoes as it is pulled in tension.

    Flexural Stress

    Resistance of a material to breaking when bent.

    Shore Hardness (D)

    Shore D Hardness is a standardised test consisting in measuring the depth of penetration of a specific indenter.


    Ensure a long post-cure to increase the tensile strength.

    Printing at a lower layer height will increase the overall strength.

    Print the part solid, not hollow for the strongest results.

    Always print models on a 45 degree angle to help the part release from the FEP sheet.

    TUFF™ resin is versatile and can be printed between 5 & 100-micron layer heights. To achieve the best results, 3D models should always be designed solid, if hollowing is required, ensure drain holes are included to remove any trapped resin.

    Always print large flat areas on an angle to help with print deformation due to the adhesion to the FEP film. To assist with unsupported areas, ensure you use well-positioned, solid supports.

    We recommend you add a 1-2 seconds wait after print setting to allow the material to cool after curing before starting to lift the build plate. (Not all slicers have this setting, check with your software provider) This resin will print faster than our rapid model resin, please adjust your settings accordingly. Use a calibration model to dial in your printer with our resin. Check our printer setting page to see if we have your printer listed to give you a good starting point.

    Wash Up



    • For best results after printing, use ResinAway® for removing uncured resin from the part. Place part in a pre-wash bath filled with ResinAway® and use a soft brush to remove excess resin. Follow by placing the component into an ultrasonic cleaner with ResinAway® for 3-5mins to help remove the resin trapped in the finer detail.
    • Ensure parts are dry by using compressed air or patting gently with a lint-free cloth before post-curing – Warning: leaving excess IPA or ResinAway® on parts might result in surface cracking.
    • TUFF™ requires post-curing to reach its optimal mechanical properties. We recommend using a 405nm LED Ultraviolet light to post-cure the model. It is recommended to post-cure for a few minutes, then remove the excess ResinAway by washing with fresh water. Then place it back in the curing chamber for at least 30 mins to improve the tensile strength of the resin. (2 hours will further enhance the mechanical properties. These properties will also increase over a few days).
    • When exposing a part to external elements, apply paint to the surface to improve longevity. Alternatively, the components can be machined, sanded and polished to create a tough scratch resistant surface.
