    Figure 4® Rigid White is a production-grade opaque white material that provides long-term environmental stability and long-lasting, clean white color. This material is recommended for use in medical, consumer goods, and industrial manufacturing applications, and other applications where a smooth surface finish, long-term indoor and outdoor stability, and biocompatible capability are needed. 

    This resin exhibits thermoplastic behavior with necking at break, making it ideal for snap-fit applications. It also features 65°C heat deflection temperature and high elongation at break. Fast print speeds and simplified post-processing enable exceptional throughput.

    Figure 4 Rigid White is a tough, rigid production plastic material. It creates much more robust parts such as clips and snaps.


“The strength and finish of parts printed in Figure 4 Rigid White are just what we needed. It is the best opaque white additive manufacturing material and it works extremely well with our applications such as smooth nests for medical device manufacturing equipment, durable prototypes with high surface quality, and high detail. We’ve replaced other similar polymers in our operations with the Figure 4 Rigid White.”

    • Enables printing of larger, thicker geometries in Premium Plus mode 
  • Material Properties

    The full suite of mechanical properties is given per ASTM and ISO standards where applicable. All parts are conditioned per ASTM recommended standards for a minimum of 40 hours at 23 °C, 50% RH. Material properties include physical and mechanical properties, as well as thermal, UL flammability, and electrical (dielectric strength, dielectric constant, dissipation factor, and volume resistivity).

  • Isotropic properties

    Figure 4 technology prints parts that are isotropic in mechanical properties meaning the parts printed along either the XYZ axis will give similar results. Parts do not need to be oriented to get the highest mechanical properties, improving the degree of freedom for part orientation for mechanical properties.

Long term environmental stability

Figure 4 Rigid White is engineered to give long-term environmental UV and humidity stability and long-lasting clean white color. This material has been tested for its ability to retain a high percentage of its initial mechanical properties over a period of time. This test data provides real performance conditions to consider for the application or part. 

The charts show a sampling of the dataset. The full data sheet includes indoor and outdoor stability data for tensile strength, elongation at break, tensile modulus, and impact strength. The actual data value is on the Y-axis, and data points are % of the initial value.

  • Indoor Stability

    Tested per ASTM D4329 standard method.

Chemical and automotive fluid compatibility

Hydrocarbons and cleaning chemical compatibility can be critical to application compatibility. Figure 4 Rigid White parts were tested for sealed and surface contact compatibility per ASTM D543 test conditions and per USCAR2 test conditions. Notched impact strength is shown below. The full data sheet includes additional data tables for tensile strength, tensile modulus, and elongation at break.
