Durable Resin is ideal for parts that need to be rigid but require some flexibility to function. Durable Resin has a high elongation ratio of 55%, it can be withstand deformation of 55% of it’s original size before breaking.
Suitable for Moving Components
Durable Resin has the lowest coefficient of friction to all the Tough or Standard Resins. It’s self-lubricating properties combined with it’s willingness to ‘give’ makes it an ideal material for mechanical joints such as ball-joints.
Resistant to Deformation
Durable Resin is capable of extreme deformation before breaking or fracturing. It can withstand repeated cyclic loads and yet still ‘spring’ back to it’s original shape once the load is removed.
High Impact Strength
Durable resin can withstand quick-loading, large forces without fracturing. It’s flexibility allows it absorb the initial impact of forces but it will return to it’s original shape due to the fact the material has some degree of rigidity.
Durable Resin is fairly wear resistant material due to both it’s hardness and low-friction surface. However, if you wish to sand the component in the post processing stage give allow for more time.
Durable Resin is perfect for squeezable prototypes (bottles etc.), Low friction and non-degrading surfaces, impact resistant jigs and prototypes for PP or HDPE.
