Strong and durable polymer
3172 is a very strong and durable photopolymer with mechanical attributes similar to polypropylene. It displays fantastic elongation, impact strength, and compression strength. Parts manufactured with 3172 can be machined, tapped, or polished.
3172 resin allows you to produce functional parts that require high stiffness with a good surface finish and high impact resistance. Attributes are similar to Polypropylene (PP). This material is resistant to impact stress and is ideal for tooling applications, manufacturing aids, housings, and consumer applications such as insoles.
- Manufacturing aids
- Tooling applications
- Housings and covers
