TOUGH AND DURABLE
A strong material with industry-leading environmental stability. Parts feature an exceptional surface finish, high precision, durability and long-term stability for fast high performance prototyping and production.
SUPERIOR SURFACE FINISH AND LONG-TERM ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY
TOUGH-BLK 20 is a strong black plastic simulating injection-molded ABS, with long-term environmental stability for fast high-performance prototyping and production applications where lifecycle stability is critical and mechanical properties fit. With production-grade indoor and outdoor environmental stability, mechanical properties, color, opacity, dimensions will not change over time with exposure to daylight. This material provides high precision, smooth surface finish and exceptional sidewall quality with minimal finishing.
MOST PLACE TO USE
⦿ Rapid design iteration
⦿ Strong functional parts for:
⦿ Automotive styling parts
⦿ Consumer electronics components
⦿ Legacy replacement parts
⦿ Form, fit and function testing
⦿ Durable assemblies and snap fits
⦿ Bezels, knobs, brackets, covers, cases
⦿ Master patterns for RTV/silicone molding
⦿ Short-run manufacturing of rigid parts
HOW WE MAKE IT
All TOUGH-BLK 20 models are 3D printed using a complex four-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized 10-30 micron high-resolution SLA 3D printer. Then put in a container where alcohol liquid to get rid of residue poured in around it. When the plaster sets, need to be cure for 10-60 minute. Last step is removing the supports.
