Using Ultra-pure Parrafin Lamp Oil versus VSO Bio-act to remove support material

Postby Sgt1966 » Mon Dec 28, 2015 5:36 pm

So we have successfully tried an alternative to the expensive VSO Bioact and have found good success using "Ultra Pure parrafin Lamp oil".

It is often available at Lowes for $7.98 per quart (suggest purchasing two quarts and trying for yourself - to ensure your success and ONLY try on non-production items at first, we started with a "purge block" and then tried on real fine printed models before production items).

The best place we found for "bulk pricing" was:

12 quarts for $54.72 = $18.24 per gallon.


So try it out and post results here... Share what other tips and tricks you have.
