 Product Description


R3 Premium Self Adhesive Film (For Fine Detail and Durability)
R3 (3mil) & R5 5 (mil) photo resist films make decorative sandcarving simple, productive and enjoyable. R3 & R5 are engineered for professional sandcarving applications in which quick-processing and high production are critical. R3 & R5 promote efficient mask production by eliminating the time-consuming and messy application of adhesive. R3 & R5 have an inherent adhesive that does not activate until the films are washed out. Even when the adhesive is active, R3 & R5 films do not feel “sticky.” This quality makes these films repositionable until firmly applied to a substrate. The R3 formulation allows the achievement of line resolution needed for fine detailed sandcarving masks. R5 is constructed with excellent durability allowing deeper carving. Remove R3 & R5 with water, or by simply peeling it off the substrate. 

Films Offer:

  • Self Adhesive
  • Easy handling — not tacky until after washout
  • Repositionable
  • Dries Fast, Easy Carrier Release
  • Excellent Imaging, Exception Detail
  • Fast Exposure
  • Superior Durability

How it works…  Begin by printing a positive image of your artwork. AccuArt™ Water Resistant Inkjet products are recommended for best results. Next, using UV light, expose your artwork to the R3 or R5 Photo Resist Film. When exposure is complete, develop with pressurized water. Once dry, apply the self-adhesive side of the film to your substrate. After removing the shiny carrier sheet, you are ready to sandcarve.For convenient storage, apply processed and dried R3 or R5 Photo Resist Film to Silicon Release paper

  1. Best of the washout resists

    Posted by Eriks on 22nd Jun 2012

    Having tried most of the washout photo resists available I find the R3 is the best. I use it on both glass and metal where only a normal etch is required. It washes out very quickly retaining a very high level of detail in the artwork. As a matter of fact I find it's almost impossible to over wash this film. It's self adhesive properties are excellent and after having used several hundred feet of this product I've never had a problem with even the smallest detail lifting off during blasting.
