• A Clear, Production-Grade Material Offering Long-Term Environmental UV, Humidity Stability and Clarity

    Figure 4 Tough Clear delivers long-term stability and a versatile combination of mechanical properties for functional prototyping or end-use parts. It offers high light transmission that can be made fully transparent with post-processing. 

    3D printing clear components is a cost-effective manufacturing process for product development. Get visibility into the workings of complex
    assemblies, observe gas or fluid flows and reduce product design cycles. Figure 4 Tough Clear introduces long-term stability which minimizes reprints due to resistance to discoloration or yellowing up to 8 years indoors.
