Need help choosing resin that doesn't scratch easy


#1

So far all resin i’ve tried can be easily scratched with my fingernail. I’m trying to create snap-fit/screw-on parts that will not leave plastic dust and dont need to be sprayed with a clear coat. I like the formlabs durable resin but is too expensive and also would like something more transparent. So far i haven’t seen any reviews or youtube videos featuring any of the resins im currently looking into so please leave a link or personal opinion on the resins below or others. Thanks

Want to try: Peoploly Nex HiTemp, Peopoly Tough, Phrozen, MakerJuice SF, Somos NeXt, Envisiontec

Tried: Peopoly model resin, Peopoly Tough, Spot-HT, Formlabs Durable

I just need clarity and abrasion resistance, strength isn’t super important if cost is better
Id like it to be close to $100 per kg

i would recommend Peopoly tough resins
Hi-temp is better for modeling and scriptures

tough would be your best bet for surface not easily scratched. Nex(Hitemp) has high hardness but may get scratched
