Endur : New 3D Printing material that simulates Polypropylene

Endur, an advanced simulated polypropylene material for PolyJet-based 3D Printers is the new durable and flexible addition to Stratasys’ growing materials portfolio. Endur offers both high impact resistance and elongation at break, resulting in tough parts with great surface finish.

Earlier this year, Stratasys released their New Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-Material 3D Printing capability. Along with fresh new colors of VeroCyan, VeroMagenta and VeroYellow, the maximum achievable multi-material per print went from 14 to 46 on a palette. The digital ABS2 also made headlines with its enhanced properties and potential for polymers to simulate engineering plastics.

Earlier this month, Stratasys further strengthen their material portfolio with a new and improved simulating polymer. The familiar DurusWhite that gives models and prototypes a polypropylene-like look and functionality now has a new cousin in the simulating polypropylene photopolymer category.

Introducing Endur, the new Polyjet 3D Printing material with chemical characteristics and composition that gives your printed models improved toughness, increased dimensional stability and great surface finish. Offered in a bright white color, our simulated Polypropylene is ideal for flexible closures and living hinges; reusable containers and packaging; and white appliances including consumer goods, household appliances, consumer electronics and automotive parts, much like the characteristics of standard plastics.

Product Marketing Manager at Stratasys, Boaz Jacobi, talks about the capabilities of Endur in the video below, and examines some application models with polypropylene features in terms of flexibility, strength and toughness. He puts Endur through its paces, demonstrating a variety of useful form, fit and assembly applications.

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.

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