UMA (Urethane Methacrylate)
UMA 90, the proprietary urethane methacrylate resin produced by Carbon, is a single cure resin designed for prototyping and producing mechanical parts. It is similar in mechanical properties to selective laser sintering plastics. Read more.
EPU (Elastomeric Polyurethane)
EPU is an elastomeric material without equal in the additive industry. Its combination of tear strength, energy return, and elongation make it perfect for cushioning, vibration isolation, gaskets, and seals. EPU is comparable to TPU elastomer. Read more.
FPU (Flexible Polyurethane)
Offering high impact strength, FPU is designed to withstand repetitive stresses, making it ideal for tough enclosures, hinging mechanisms, and friction fits. FPU is comparable to polypropylene. Read more.
RPU (Rigid Polyurethane)
RPU 70, a material developed by Carbon® for their Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology, is known for its toughness, strength, and ability to withstand heat. This stiff and strong material is comparable to ABS and also holds a UL 94 HB flame resistance classification. Read more.
CE (Cyanate Ester)
CE 221 is known for its high temperature resistance and rigidness. Because of its high heat-deflection, it can be used in applications with extreme thermal requirements. CE 221 is comparable to glass-filled nylon and is best suited for under-the-hood components, electronics assemblies, and industrial products. Read more.
EPX 81 is Carbon’s most accurate high strength rigid material, with mechanical properties comparable to 20% glass-filled PBT. It has a heat deflection temperature of 140°C and excellent abrasion resistance, making it useful in a variety of automotive, industrial, and consumer product settings. EPX is comparable to glass-filled PBT. Read more.
MPU (Multi-purpose Polyurethane)
Offering a unique blend of biocompatibility, sterilizability, and durability, MPU 100 is a two-component material that produces isotropic parts with fine features. MPU is best suited for medical products and devices, consumer health care products, and drug contact applications. Read more.
SIL (Silicone Urethane)
The first additive material to offer a unique combination of biocompatibility, low durometer, and tear-resistance. This material opens up the ability to print customized applications for comfortable skin contact products such as headphones, wristbands, and various attachments for wearables. SIL is comparable to commercial TPEs with a Shore A hardness of 35. Read more.
