The Bridge between Tough and Durable
Tough 1500 offers the durability, low friction and pliability of Durable Resin however it retains some of the strength and rigidity of Tough 200o Resin. Thus making it ideal for strong components which will require flexibility but also be long lasting.
Resistant to Permanent Deformation
Although Tough 1500 has the ability to be bent or compressed, it is generally a rigid material. It will not permanently deform unless exposed to a very large load.
The Elongation at Break (%) of Tough 1500 is 51, it can withstand extreme elongation before breaking or failing.
High Impact Strength
Due to the strength of the material is is able to absorb large amounts of energy before it fractures, and because of it’s flexibility, Tough 1500 can withstand these high forces even if they are applied at high speeds
Tough 1500 can withstand repeat, cyclic uses under high loads. The material is resistance to ‘kinking’ or having concentrated areas of high strain, this results in an even spread of load and reduces the chance of failure.
Examples of Use
Tough 1500 is ideal for modelling ‘springy’ components, snap fits, press connectors and other products with similar properties to Polypropylene.
