Rubber-like Material Perfect for Producing Flexible Designs
Rubber-like material is useful for many different modeling applications and is perfect for producing designs that need flexibility, offering a variety of elastomer characteristics including Shore scale A hardness, tear resistance and tensile strength.
By combining other rigid and rubber-like materials, additional digital materials can be created with more Shore values, in a range of colour materials on Connex3 3D printing systems. There are many uses for rubber-like material, including:
- Exhibition and communication models
- Rubber surrounds and over-molding
- Soft-touch coatings and non-slip surfaces
- Knobs, grips, pulls, handles, gaskets, seals, hoses and footwear
The Connex, Connex2 and Connex3 systems can also combine Rigid Opaque white material (VeroWhitePlus), Rubber-like black material (TangoBlackPlus) and Rubber-like material (TangoPlus) to simulate nine Shore A values ranging from Shore 27 to Shore 95, having increased tensile strength and tear resistance. More Shore Values can be created with additional digital materials, by combining other rigid and rubber-like materials.
