FabPro Flexible BLK is a flexible and exceptionally durable material that allows the production of polypropylene-like parts with amazing elongation at break and impact strength. In fact, in unnotched Izod impact strength testing to ATSM standards, the FabPro Flexible BLK material did not break. With FabPro’s accuracy, this robust material provides outstanding flexibility for a wider variety of prototyping, functional testing and low volume production applications. 

Applications:

    • Functional assemblies and prototypes 
      • Automotive styling parts
      • Consumer goods and electronic components
      • Snap fit assemblies
      • Containers and enclosures
      • Product design
    • Master patterns for RTV/silicone molding
    • Replacement of short-run cast urethane production parts
    • Concept and marketing models
