Carbon's EPU 46, a new high-performance elastomer material, is the first resin in Carbon’s elastomer portfolio to offer customization in color and material stiffness. Available in black and color base, EPU 46 enables customers to print colors unique to their brand and esthetic. Material stiffness can be tuned through different resin ratios to achieve material stiffnesses from Shore 78A to Shore 56A without compromising printability, the company reports.
Durable enough for high-performance applications, EPU 46 is Carbon’s premier energy return resin. One hundred percent stiffer than EPU 41, EPU 46 enables printing of lighter parts through lower-density lattices, which unlocks lower part economics and a wider range of printable geometries. This elastomer is 40% bio-based and is designed for solvent-free cleaning and resin reclaim to minimize waste, according to Carbon.
