Elastic 50A Cartridge - 1L
Formlabs Elastic 50A Resin is an essential component for your engineering and prototyping projects. Whether you’re optimizing your manufacturing process, rapidly iterating through designs, or assessing form, fit, and function, Formlabs Engineering Resins are formulated to withstand extensive testing and perform under stress. This 50A Shore durometer material is specifically designed to simulate the feel of silicone, making it the perfect choice for prototyping soft and flexible parts.
The “50A” in the name represents the material’s Shore durometer, which measures its hardness and softness. With a low Shore durometer value, Elastic 50A Resin offers high elasticity, making it suitable for parts that will bend, stretch, compress, and hold up to repeated cycles without tearing. Additionally, this material quickly springs back to its original shape, providing consistent performance for your prototypes.
Available for both Form 2 and Form 3 generation printers, this material supports print resolutions of 100 microns and requires post-curing. Before using Elastic 50A Resin, ensure compatibility with your printer model and consider the lower lifetime of resin tanks compared to other materials. However, if you require a stiffer flexible material, Formlabs also offers Flexible 80A Resin, with a higher Shore durometer value.
In conclusion, Formlabs Elastic 50A Resin provides the perfect balance of softness and strength for your engineering and prototyping projects. Whether you need to simulate the feel of silicone or produce flexible parts that withstand repeated cycles, this material will meet your needs and help bring your ideas to life.
