Highly elastic, tear resistant, and resilient

EPU is our elastomeric material family. Its combination of tear strength, energy return, and elongation makes it perfect for cushioning, impact absorption, vibration isolation, gaskets, and seals. Our EPU family (EPU 40 and EPU 41) is especially well-suited for producing elastomeric lattices to create foam-like product experiences.

EPU 40 is our original elastomer material. EPU 40 has higher elongation and tear strength, but lower resilience, compared to the next generation EPU 41.

EPU 41 is our production-grade elastomeric material. EPU 41 has higher resilience (energy return) and better retention of elastomeric properties than EPU 40 at temperatures > -10°C. Offered only in 5-L bulk packaging, EPU 41 will require MMD (meter, mix, and dispense) equipment for proper dispensing of the material in bulk quantities.

Mechanical Properties

Our EPU family is comparable to commercial TPUs with a Shore A hardness of 70.

Material qualifications

Our materials are breaking new ground in additive manufacturing. CLIP enables 3D printing with novel classes of polymers, including complex chemistries such as polyurethane and cyanate ester-based resins. The result is a diverse and growing selection of materials reflecting common engineering requirements. The data speaks for itself — our materials make us different.
