“We are using the Figure 4 Rigid Gray material to rapidly deliver functional parts for our consumer sporting goods lines, including ski helmet accessories, bicycle lighting covers, and sporting shoe soles and components. We are very impressed with the performance of this material and the overall productivity of the Figure 4 solution. Out of the printer, parts display excellent dimensional accuracy and perfect quality, comparable to injection-molded plastics. The attractive gray color of the material is also ideal for highlighting fine surface details and texture-on-part.”— Grégoire Mercusot, Material Engineer, Decathlon
Chemical and Automotive Fluid Compatibility
Hydrocarbons and cleaning chemical compatibility can be critical to application compatibility. Figure 4 Rigid Gray parts were tested for sealed and surface contact compatibility per ASTM D543 test conditions and per USCAR2 test conditions. The notched impact strength is shown below. The full data sheet includes additional data tables for tensile strength, tensile modulus, and elongation at break.
