Flexible Resin has a Shore Hardness of 85A and a Ultimate Tensile Strength of 80MPa. The material is flexible enough so that it can be formed using your hands but it is strong enough to support it’s own weight and not deform under gravity.
Flexible Resin is soft to touch and has a slightly matted finish. The appearance is professional, presentable and can be used to mimic the style of rubber. It properties mean that it can withstand rough handling and maintain a good appearance.
Flexible Resin is very good for modelling ergonomic features such as handles etc. It’s soft touch properties make it suitable for products which are commonly touched by the user. It’s flexibility and gripping properties make it suitable to be fitted or wrapped around existing products.
Suitable for Repeated use
Once set and cured, Flexible Resin is suitable for modelling and prototyping parts that will experience repetitive compression and stretching. It can experience continuous deformation before it tears.
Flexible Resin can be used to prototype and test components made of rubber or silicone. It is quicker and easier to produce parts with Flexible Resin but it displays similar properties.
Handles, grips, overmoulds, cushioning, dampening and wearable products are all examples of uses for Flexible Resin.
