Liqcreate Tough-X is a durable opaque black photopolymer resin with high impact resistance. 3D-printed parts from this material have exceptional impact strengt. Liqcreate Tough-X can be 3D-pinted on open DLP and MSLA 3D-printers in the range of 385 – 420nm and only requires UV post-curing.
Thin parts of Tough-X have rigid rubber-like properties while thicker designs feel robust like ABS plastic. This material has excellent properties like high impact strength and up to 150% elongation, making it perfect for the production of Industrial spare parts and other functional products.
The mechanical properties of Liqcreate Tough-X are measured on standard ASTM and ISO specimen. Thin designs 3D-printed with Tough-X mimic rigid rubber properties, while thicker designs feel robust like ABS plastic.
