3D Systems is launching Accura Peak Plastic, a newly engineered stereoligraphy resin that is designed for optimal performance, accuracy and stability during prolonged exposure to elevated temperature and humidity.
Accura Peak Plastic is suitable for demanding automotive, aerospace and motorsports applications whose harsh conditions require strength, stiffness and high levels of thermal and humidity stability. Accura Peak Plastic is a precision material for the production of high-definition master patterns, fixtures and jigs, thermoforming tools and functional models requiring accuracy and long-term dimensional stability. Additionally, the properties of this new plastic make it a natural fit for the custom production of under-the-hood automotive parts for performance evaluations.
Steve Hanna, 3D Systems' director of materials sales and marketing, comments: "Accura Peak Plastic is a breakthrough material specifically tailored for extreme operating environment applications for our growing base of automotive, motorsports and aerospace users. This new plastic also supports our geographic expansion plans into regions of the world where extreme ambient conditions dictate this level of performance stability."
Designed for use with iPro and Viper SLA systems, Accura Peak Plastic is available immediately through the company's 3Dproparts network.
