UMA (Urethane Methacrylate) 

The UMA family contains rigid resins similar to conventional SLA resins. It has a strength similar to ABS and moderate elongation at break. This material can be any color of the spectrum and is commonly used for manufacturing jigs, fixtures, and general purpose prototypes.

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.

FPU (Flexible Polyurethane)

Offering high impact strength, cycle life, and CLIP’s exceptional surface finish, FPU is a material without equal in the additive industry. It is designed to withstand repetitive stresses, making it ideal for tough enclosures, hinging mechanisms, and friction fits. FPU is comparable to polypropylene.

RPU (Rigid Polyurethane)

Rigid Polyurethane is Carbon’s most versatile rigid material family. It is used across a wide range of industries, including consumer products, automotive, and industrial. RPU 70 has a UL 94 HB flame resistance classification. RPU is comparable to ABS.

CE (Cyanate Ester)

With a 231°C heat deflection temperature, strength, and stiffness, CE 221 is perfect for applications that need long term thermal stability, like under-the-hood components, electronics assemblies, and industrial products. CE is comparable to glass-filled nylon.

EPX (Epoxy)

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.

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.
