Storing Recycled Resin


#1

TLDR; Looking for containers that block UVA light to store recycled resin.

I’m looking for some containers or bottles to temporarily store recycled resin in. The official printing guide says to “use a bottle that blocks UV light and is chemically resistant”. Most of the bottles I could find are only partially UV blocking (amber tinted) or only block UVB and the visible spectrum. The Bean LCD is specified as having a 405 nm LCD to cure the resin which is just on the edge of the UVA and visible light border.

Does anyone know where I can find ~500 ml containers that block UVA and the visible spectrum?

Opaque HPDE bottle is enough for your use.

Amber glass is totally fine. I’ve stored resin in amber glass for years.
