3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) has announced the immediate availability of Accura® Xtreme™ White-200 plastic for use in 3D Systems’ iPro SLA® (stereolithography) printers. Said to be the toughest and most durable SLA material available today, Accura Xtreme offers high elongation at break, high impact strength and the stiffness and durability of ABS plastic. The material is targeted for direct manufacturing of end use parts, including snap fits, functional assemblies, master patterns for vacuum casting and applications requiring outstanding toughness, such as automotive parts, drill/tap and mechanisms that must be bolted together.
“Our new Accura Xtreme White-200 material is a revolutionary breakthrough in SLA plastics,” said Steve Hanna, Global Director of Materials, for 3D Systems. “Accura Xtreme White – 200 parts have the toughness and durability of ABS for both prototyping and manufacturing uses. Best of all, these parts reflect a stunning white finish that replicates the look and feel of an injection molded part.”
