WATERWORKS SOLUBLE REMOVAL CONCENTRATE P400SC FOR FDM BUILDS.

I have 11 bottles of the Waterworks concentrate P400SC. All unopened. Used to dissolve soluble support material from FDM builds. Asking $ 60 for all 11 bottles. Here’s what the material is used for. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and PolyJet Technologies from Stratasys offer a broad range of well-tested polymer materials. This wide range of material choices enables the creation of durable and accurate parts that meet the demanding needs of manufacturing prototyping, tooling, and production. This has made Stratasys, and their technologies, one of the most popular Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions worldwide. An additional advantage of Stratasys AM solutions are the available support options. The FDM and PolyJet processes require support material under overhanging geometry. In many other processes, the supports are made from the same base material as the part being created. Those supports must be cut or machined away, a lengthy and expensive task. Stratasys solves this problem with material that breaks away from the desired part or that can be dissolved in water. This Best Practices Guide focuses on the effective and efficient removal of soluble supports. It covers the material options available from Stratasys, safety guidelines, and how SCA systems remove the material, along with tips and hints for users.

WATERWORKS REMOVAL CONCENTRATE The most common additive for speeding the support removal process is WaterWorks concentrated solution. This is an alkaline chemical consisting of Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Hydroxide along with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, and Sodium Metasilicate. The Sodium Carbonate and Sodium Hydroxide react with the ester groups so the water can get in and do its job. The other two ingredients help with PolyJet support removal. The current part number for the concentrate is P400SC. And it can be purchased from the same supplier that provides customers with other Stratasys materials. The concentrate is in 2.1 lb. bottles. It is recommended that one 2.1 lb. bottle be used each time the SCA-1200HT is filled and two 2.1 lb. bottles are added to water for the SCA 3600. Note: WaterWorks concentrate bottles can only be shipped by ground. Once mixed with water in the SCA tank (see below for the proper ratios), the pH level is around 12.6. For reference, laundry detergent is 11-12 and dishwasher detergent 10-11. WaterWorks concentrate can be added to SCA tanks for both FDM and Polyjet support material removal. For Polyjet support removal, PADT has found that the ratio recommended for FDM support removal works just as well for Polyjet support removal. Note: FDM and Polyjet parts should not be processed together or in the same cleaning solution. If only one SCA is available, fresh cleaning solution is required when switching between the two technologies.

If you’re local I can meet in Waukesha (cash only) at the Waukesha Police Dept. parking lot. It has a monitored area set up for internet exchanges like this. I’ve used it many times and it’s a safe and neutral area. If you are interested or have any questions or want more pictures, please contact me.
