Flexible Resin

Soft-touch texture for tactile applications.

Flexible is versatile, tactile, and impact-resistant. Push the boundaries of 3D printing by creating parts that are bendable and compressible. Flexible Resin is excellent for prototyping, product design, and engineering. Learn more about using Flexible Resin.

Tactile and Impact Resistant

Functional Resins bring versatility to your 3D printer.

Flexible Materials Comparison

  Formlabs Flexible Stratasys Tango Series1 Rubber Band2
Elongation 80% 45–220% 750–850%
Tensile Strength 7.7–8.5 MPa 0.8–5.0 MPa 20–30 MPa
Hardness 80–85A 26–77A 20–30A

Note

To achieve desired durability, prints made with Flexible Resin should be post-cured approximately 60 minutes at a 45°C temperature under a 405 nm wavelength light source. Read our Material team's post-cure recommendations.

Ideal for

  • Cushioning and dampening
  • Functional prototypes
  • Ergonomic prototypes: handles, grips
  • Simulating soft-touch materials
  • Adding soft overmolds to multi-material assemblies
  • Packaging
  • Stamps

Not suitable for

  • Simulating very high elongation materials (rubber band)
  • Very fine features or thin walls

High-Resolution

Capture incredible detail when printing precise models, or create tactile parts that benefit from a pliable material.

Strength & Precision

Its compression characteristics make this impact-resistant resin ideal for custom gaskets, grips, and flexible joints.

Surface Finish

Smooth finish perfect for tactile interfaces, wearables, and prototyping.

Handling & Safety

Our resins have been designed to be as safe as possible, but nevertheless, working with them requires care, similar to working with common adhesives or household cleaners. They do not have volatile solvents so special ventilation is not required, though skin contact should be avoided.
