This resin has properties similar to polypropylene’s tensile strength and elongation. It has a good balance of properties between rigidity and functionality. This material is especially useful in applications where durability and robustness are critical requirements (eg. auto components, electronic housings, medical products, large panels and snap-fit parts).
Somos® NeXt is an extremely durable stereolithography (SL) resin that produces very accurate parts with high feature detail. Based on the Somos® DMX technology, Somos® NeXt is a next generation of material that facilitates the production of tough, complex parts with improved moisture resistance and greater thermal properties.
The materials used in the molding process are Polyurethanes. There are many types of polyurethanes available that replicate many material types from ABS, Polypropylene and Nylon to soft, rubber like materials within the Shore ‘A’ hardness table.
We are able to pigment the materials to match most colours.
