Formlabs' Silicone 40A Resin: The Pinnacle of Silicone 3D Printing

In the ever-evolving realm of 3D printing, Formlabs is once again at the forefront, proudly unveiling the Silicone 40A Resin. This isn't just another addition to the 3D printing material lineup; it's a revolutionary leap, merging the unmatched properties of cast silicone with the advantages of 3D printing.

Why Silicone 40A Resin Stands Out 🌟

  1. Pure Silicone Technology™: Formlabs' patent-pending technology ensures you're working with 100% pure silicone, setting a new standard in the industry.
  2. Exceptional Material Properties: With a 40A Shore durometer, 230% elongation at break, and 12 kN/m tear strength, this resin is designed for applications demanding flexibility and resilience.
  3. Cost and Time Efficiency: Say goodbye to the long waits and high costs associated with traditional manufacturing. With Silicone 40A Resin, produce intricate parts in mere hours.

Applications That Resonate Excellence 🛠️

  • Rapid Prototyping: Accelerate the product development cycle for consumer goods, automotive components, and industrial equipment. Think keypads, watch bands, and more.
  • Custom Manufacturing: Ideal for producing seals, gaskets, and other indoor end-use parts.
  • Medical Innovations: From patient-specific prosthetics to audiology solutions, the medical field stands to benefit immensely.
  • Complex Designs: Achieve geometries that were once deemed impossible with traditional methods.

Chris Allebach, Additive Manufacturing Lead at Dorman Products, marvels at the resin's printability, stating, "The quality of the small geometry of parts we printed was unbelievable. Everyone was blown away by the feel of the material and how it rebounds."

Empowering Businesses, Big and Small 🚀

Whether you're a startup or an industry giant, Silicone 40A Resin is your ticket to faster market entry, reduced costs, and enhanced product quality. With Formlabs' SLA 3D printer, you're not just investing in a machine; you're investing in the future of manufacturing.
