Rebound Resin: A Production-Ready Elastic 3D Printing Material

With five times the tear strength, three times the tensile strength, and two times the elongation of other production-grade elastomeric materials on the market, Rebound Resin is perfect for 3D printing springy, resilient parts.

Performs under pressure.

Rebound Resin is strong enough to handle constant compression or tension, great for manufacturing complex gaskets and seals that last.

Tear strength

110 kN/m

Tensile strength

22 MPa

New Balance shoes

Miles of Real World Testing

New Balance shoes incorporating Rebound Resin are already on the market and worn around the world.

Rebound Resin withstands the elements, enduring daily use in all-weather conditions to outperform and outlast traditional materials.

Working With Rebound Resin

Rebound Resin is more complex to work with than other Formlabs products and requires extra steps for successful production.

This material is available exclusively through partnership with Formlabs
and requires a minimum quantity commitment to get started.

Rebound Resin Design

1. Design 
Rebound Resin requires designing within specific constraints for successful printing. Start small, follow the usage guidelines, and experiment.
