Objet Geometries Ltd. (Rehovot,Israel) announced the release of the newest addition to its FullCure line of photopolymer materials, simulating plastics, DurusWhite, FullCure430.
DurusWhite, FullCure430 will be useful for a broad range of applications requiring polypropylene-like toughness, strength and flexibility, such as food packaging, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, and automotive components. DurusWhite looks and feels like final products made of polypropylene, with its milky-white appearance. Moreover, it simulates the toughness (Izod Notched Impact of 44.22 J/m), flexibility (Elongation at Break of 44.2%) and strength (Modulus of Elasticity of 1135 MPa) of polypropylene.
In addition DurusWhite’s mechanical properties include resistance to fatigue and the snap-fit functionality over time, both of which are vital to products with hinged mechanisms.
DurusWhite works with Objet's 3-Dimensional Printing Systems: Connex500, Eden500V, Eden350V, Eden350 and Eden330/333. It is delivered in environmental friendly, sealed 3.6kg cartridges.
