The Stratasys family of rubber-like materials for PolyJet printers has a new member: Agilus30. You might ask: why another rubber-like material when we already have the Tango series? The short version is STRENGTH! Agilus30 maintains many of the desirable properties of Tango materials, but with additional durability against different types of stresses. Let’s take a quick look:
Agilus30 Key Features
- Simulates the look, feel, and function of real rubber
- Excellent flexibility and tear resistance
- Shore A value of 30 in two colors; clear or black
- Durability allows for functional testing
- Ideal for rapid prototyping and design validation
- Compatible with Objet and Connex PolyJet 3D printers
Agilus30 vs. TangoPlus
- Product testing & validation: Test functional prototypes with rubberlike components
- Prototyping & marketing: Prototype your product (and impress potential investors) with functional models that look and feel great
- Medical models: Simulate soft tissue for medical training and surgical evaluation
