• Applications

    • Slow-rebound hard-rubber material allows for multiple touch applications, including grips, handles, bumpers
    • Good for strain-relief type applications
    • Couplings and overmoldings
    • Production parts needing long term environmental stability where mechanical properties fit
  • Benefits

    • Exceptional surface finish
    • Very tough material
    • Great for soft touch applications
    • Engineered for long term environmental stability
  • Features

    • High tear strength
    • Shore hardness of 59D and 97A
    • Tough and durable
    • Biocompatible capable per ISO10993-5 and ISO10993-10
  • Key Material Properties

    The full suite of mechanical properties are 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, further improving the degree of freedom for part orientation for mechanical properties.

Long term environmental stability

Figure 4 RUBBER-BLK 10 is engineered to give long term environmental UV and humidity stability. This means the material is tested for the ability to retain a high percent of the initial mechanical properties over a given period of time. This provides real design conditions to consider for the application or part. 

The chart shows a sampling of the dataset. The full datasheet includes Indoor and Outdoor Stability data for Tensile Strength, Elongation at Break, Tensile Modulus and Impact Strength. Actual data value is on Y-axis, and data points are % of initial value.

  • Indoor Stability

    Tested per ASTM D4329 standard method.

Chemical and automotive fluid compatibility

The compatibility of a material with hydrocarbons and cleaning chemicals is critical to part application. Figure 4 RUBBER-BLK 10 parts were tested for sealed and surface contact compatibility per ASTM D543 test conditions and per USCAR2 test conditions.  Tensile Strength (MPa) is shown below. The full datasheet includes additional data tables for Tensile Modulus, Elongation at Break and Notched Impact Strength.
