New Endur PolyJet material from Stratasys

This week, Stratasys expanded its portfolio of 3D printing materials with Endur, a new PolyJet 3D printing material for use with Eden, Connex and Objet printers.

Endur is an alternative to Durus, with improved chemical characteristics and composition to give models and prototypes a polypropylene-like look and functionality, much like the characteristics of standard plastics.

In the video below, Boaz Jacobi, Product Marketing Manager at Stratasys, talks about the capabilities of Endur and examines some applicative models that look and behave like polypropylene in terms of flexibility, strength and toughness.



Just like the name implies, Endur is tough. The polypropylene-like material offers both high impact resistance and superior elongation at break. Endur has a heat-deflection temperature up to 129°F/ 54°C, excellent dimensional stability and comes in a bright white color. It also features an excellent surface finish to make it easier to achieve a smooth look and feel.

These properties make Endur attractive for 3D printing prototypes that need the flexibility, appearance and toughness of polypropylene for a wide range of form, fit and assembly applications. This includes moving parts, snap-fit components, and small cases and containers with lids. The white tone and smooth surface finish make it ideal for consumer goods, electronics and household appliances, lab equipment and automotive parts.

Endur is available now from Objective3D for use with all Objet EdenV, Objet Connex, Objet500 Connex3 and Objet30 Pro 3D Printers.
