3D Printing. Rubber. Strong & Durable.

Strong and Durable 3D printed Rubber like materials.

3D Printing in Simulated rubber. Strong and Durable.

Our Strong & Durable service option for 3D printing in Rubber Like materials gives you a number of options for building your designs. These materials give you the ability to 3d print in flexible, rubber like materials with more durability and better temperature resistance than our 'Fine detail' rubber like materials. 

This page describes our 3d printed materials using the SLA process, giving exceptional 'A' surface finish and best temperature resistance. 

In addition we offer TPU Rubber 3D Printed materials where your applications need best tear resistance and durability. 

All are possibilities for end use applications after appropriate confirmation testing. 

  • Build Volume: 145 x 145 x 175mm
  • Smooth surface finish (rougher at support attachment points).
  • Good Detail from 0.1mm (100um) layers with 50um option for small designs.
  • Minimum recommended feature detail or wall thickness of 1mm.
  • See below for full spec.

SLA 'Flex V2' - Rubber Like

Our Rubber Like FlexV2 material in Black\Grey is 3d printed laser cured resin (SLA) and ideal for small parts where the "snip away" support structures are relatively simple.  The material features excellent finish on the 'A' surfaces and fabricates your 3D printed designs in a hardness of Shore A of 80 to 85 and a high heat deflection temperature.    

Applications include prototype automotive parts for testing, remanufactured parts for a classic car and motorcycle restorations, plus jigs, fixtures and tooling for manufacturing applications.     

Note: Flex V2 is approaching 'End of Life' but we currently have material available.

SLA 'Flexible 80A' - Rubber Like

Flexible 80A is a new rubber like flexible material, printed translucent\clear.  It offers improved mechanical properties over our original FlexV2 material.

Typical applications include automotive motorsport seals and gaskets and other flexible designs. 

A big benefit of Flex80A is the much reduced touch point size making support removal and the resulting surface roughness much better.
