SIL 30

Soft, biocompatible, and tear resistant

Soft touch, biocompatible, and tear resistant

SIL 30 is a silicone urethane. It is the first additive material to offer a unique combination of biocompatibility, low durometer, and tear-resistance.

This material opens up the ability to print customized applications for comfortable skin contact products such as headphones, wristbands, and various attachments for wearables.

SIL is a specialty material available for specific production applications.
