Expanded Range of Functional Materials

Introducing Our Newest Elastomer: Carbon EPU 44

EPU 44 is a resilient elastomer that is stiff, durable, and flexible. It is available in two colors: white and translucent gray.

EPU 44 features numerous upgrades from EPU 41 including improved performance with lighter lattices, and overall better economics thanks to a faster print time and higher green strength. It’s also more sustainable than EPU 41 and has been proven in production by adidas in the midsole of their 4DFWD shoes.

EPU 44 is commercialized as a General Factory product, requiring industrial-class dispensing, cleaning, and baking equipment. Product development support as well as material and product samples are available now. Serial production is available in Taiwan, China, and Germany.
