Technology: Stereolithography

Stereolithography (SLA) - Accura® Xtreme

Description

Accura® Xtreme is a high-performance material designed to meet challenging applications’ demands and short-run production projects. This material boasts physical properties comparable to tough and durable end-use plastics, such as ABS and Polypropylene. It is an excellent choice for creating functional prototypes that withstand rigorous testing and analysis.

 

One of the most significant advantages of Accura® Xtreme is its exceptional strength and durability. This material is incredibly tough and can withstand high levels of stress and strain without cracking or breaking. Additionally, it offers excellent heat resistance, making it suitable for use in applications that require exposure to high temperatures. Applications that require exposure to high temperatures.
