GT PRINT MODEL Water-Washable 3D Printer Resin
GT PRINT ™ MODEL is a patent-pending, water-washable 3D-printer resin formulated specifically for fast, accurate printing of orthodontic models for clear aligners and retainers.
Water-Washable (no IPA required)
Models printed with GT PRINT MODEL can be cleaned using simple tap water – no need for alcohol (IPA) or other dangerous and expensive cleaning solvents.
Fast-Printing and Fast-Curing
GT PRINT MODEL prints up to 31% faster than standard model resins and cures (after printing) faster than standard resins as well*.
* Data on file. Results may vary by specific brand or individual printer. In our testing in general, GT PRINT MODEL prints and cures significantly faster than standard model resins.
Detailed and Accurate Printing
GT PRINT MODEL allows for printing in high detail and with high dimensional accuracy, well within the tolerances typically required for aligner and retainer models.
High Strength for More Accurate Thermoforming
After proper printing and curing, models printed with GT PRINT MODEL are super-strong. This strength helps the models maintain their printed dimensions during thermoforming, which helps you make better-fitting aligners and retainers!

Easy to Pour and Easy to Clean
Standard model resins tend to be more syrupy and sticky, but GT PRINT MODEL flows more like water. Its super-low viscosity makes GT PRINT MODEL easier to pour and easier to clean from your printer when done.

Engineered for Easier Recycling
GT PRINT MODEL is engineered to start self-degrading within about one week after use, depending on environmental conditions:
Even if you are not participating in recycling programs, this feature should help reduce the amount of space taken up by your discarded models.
If you do have recycling programs available in your area (such as using the discarded material as a filler in various laboratory materials or building substances), this feature should help make the discarded models easier to incorporate into those programs.
