Stratasys Debuts Four P3 DLP, Two F900 Materials
Stratasys also introduces automatic support generation functionality to its GrabCAD Print software for Origin One.
November 10, 2023
Stratasys Ltd. announces four new P3 materials including Somos WeatherX 100 and the development of its Kimya PC-FR and FDM HIPS validated materials for the F900.
Four New P3 DLP Materials
Stratasys is offering four new performance-grade materials for Origin One printers:
- Somos WeatherX 100*: For environmentally durable applications like vehicle interiors, motorcycle components and outdoor consumer products. It provides manufacturers testing data on material weatherability, durability and dimensional accuracy as it is tested with SAE industry standards.
- Somos PerFORM HW*: For injection molds or high stiffness fixtures that need rigidity. This ceramic-filled material offers abrasion and high-temperature resistance.
- P3 Deflect 190 ESD*: A specialty resin, made with Henkel, enables additive manufacturing for jigs and fixtures in electronic and general manufacturing as well as tooling and housing applications. Its properties include heat deflection temperature of 190°C, electrostatic dissipative properties and high stiffness.
- P3 Stretch 80*: An elastomeric prototyping resin made with Forward AM by BASF, for soft or flexible parts like seals, gaskets, grips and maskants.
Stratasys also introduces automatic support generation functionality to its GrabCAD Print software for Origin One. Users can choose from predefined support profiles based on material properties—rigid, tough, or elastomeric—or customize for workflow control.
Two New F900 Materials
For continued growth of the Stratasys F900, Stratasys has two new materials for the F900, and eight new colors for ULTEM, PC and PC-ABS. The expanded material line creates value on the platform by expanding Stratasys’ application space.
Kimya PC-FR: A flame-resistant polycarbonate material that is specifically designed for end-use parts.
FDM HIPS: A high-impact polystyrene-based material for low requirements applications.
The new OpenAM software, including an open material license, is also now available for the F900.
“Expanding our portfolio of validated materials offers our customers the additional choices needed to address a broader range of applications to produce at scale,” says Stratasys CEO Dr. Yoav Zeif. “As additive manufacturing continues to enjoy growth, there is no limit to what is possible with 3D printing, and we are pleased to be able to deliver on this promise to our customers.”
*These materials will become commercially available late 2023 / early 2024.
