Prototype production – storage time and disposal
If no repeat order is placed within one year, all inventory items allocated to the article are disposed of in a professional (the items cannot be identified afterwards) and environmentally friendly manner (does not apply to rapid-tooling injection-molding tools).
Aluminum molds for injection molding production – storage time and disposal
Aluminum molds for injection molding are stored free of charge for three years after completion of the last production run/order. The tools are then disposed of in a professional (the items cannot be identified afterwards) and environmentally friendly manner. Longer storage is possible.

Note on the durability of stereolithography parts
The shelf life of some undelivered products (especially stereolithography parts) is very limited. STL parts are prone to warping within a few days due to water absorption, which causes them to increase in volume. Therefore, these parts cannot usually be reused multiple times for silicone-mold production. They often break during demolding from the first mold.
