During the last months Thinker Maker Space Technicians have been training and working with our equipment. They are experimenting with new materials, shapes, angles and possibilities.
Elastic 50A Resin is an elastomeric material designed for applications requiring high elongation and high energy return. Elasticity is the ability of an object or material to resume its normal shape after being stretched or compressed. Elastic 50A Resin is designed to “bounce back” and return to its original shape quickly. Durometer is the hardness of a material. Elastic 50A Resin has a lower durometer than other Formlabs resins, making it suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone. Elastic 50A Resin also has a higher tear strength than comparable materials, making it capable of repeated cycles of use.
