Revolutionizing 3D Printing: An Introduction to Silicone 40A Resin

In the ever-evolving world of 3D printing, Formlabs has once again raised the bar. As the Country Manager of 3DVerkstan Danmark, I'm thrilled to introduce you to the Silicone 40A Resin, a groundbreaking material that promises to redefine the boundaries of 3D printing.

Formlabs' Silicone 40A Resin, powered by their patent-pending Pure Silicone Technology™, is the first of its kind, offering the unmatched properties of cast silicone combined with the advantages of 3D printing. This innovation addresses a significant gap in the market, where elastomeric 3D printing options were abundant, but pure silicone 3D printing solutions were either too expensive or technically challenging.

The Silicone 40A Resin boasts impressive specifications: a 40A Shore durometer, 230% elongation at break, and a tear strength of 12 kN/m. These properties make it perfect for applications demanding flexibility and durability, even under repeated stress. Furthermore, this resin can produce intricate features as tiny as 0.3 mm, which are often challenging with conventional manufacturing techniques.

The potential applications are vast, from rapid prototyping and beta testing for consumer goods, automotive components, and industrial equipment to cost-effective low-volume manufacturing of indoor parts. The medical field can also benefit, with opportunities in patient-specific prosthetics and audiology applications.

But why should businesses consider silicone 3D printing? Silicone parts, known for their flexibility, durability, and resistance to chemicals and temperature, find applications across various industries. Traditional manufacturing methods, while effective for mass production, can be costly and time-consuming for smaller batches. Silicone 3D printing, on the other hand, offers a cost-effective and rapid solution, especially for businesses looking to produce lower quantities.

With Silicone 40A Resin, Formlabs has eliminated the need to choose between cost, quality, and speed. Now, anyone with a Formlabs SLA 3D printer can produce high-quality silicone parts swiftly, bypassing the complexities of casting and the exorbitant costs of tooling.


The Silicone 40A Resin is more than just a new material; it's a testament to the limitless possibilities of 3D printing. As we at 3DVerkstan Danmark continue to explore and embrace these innovations, we're excited about the doors this will open for businesses across Denmark and beyond.
