New material offers toughness, strength and flexibility of PP

21-Jul-08
A new material has been introduced: Durus ™, the newest addition to its FullCure® line of photopolymer materials, simulating plastics. DurusWhite, FullCure430 expands the FullCure line of modeling materials, addresses a broad range of applications requiring polypropylene-like toughness, strength and flexibility, such as food packaging, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive components and more. DurusWhite, gives the same milky-white look and feel of final products made of polypropylene. It simulates the toughness (Izod Notched Impact of 44.22 J/m), flexibility (Elongation at Break of 44.2%) and strength (Modulus of Elasticity of 1135 MPa) of polypropylene. The mechanical properties of DurusWhite simulate polypropylene resistance to fatigue and enable snap-fit functionality over time, which are critical for products with hinging mechanisms. This is a key success factor for materials in rapid prototyping, where their ability to simulate the final product is their most significant quality. The material has been introduced by Objet Geometries Ltd., a pioneer in photopolymer jetting, develops, manufactures and globally markets ultra-thin-layer, high-resolution 3-Dimensional printing systems and materials that utilize PolyJet(TM) Polymer Jetting technology, to print ultra-thin 16-micron layers.
