“The strength and finish of parts printed in Figure 4 Rigid White are just what we needed. It is the best opaque white additive manufacturing material and it works extremely well with our applications such as smooth nests for medical device manufacturing equipment, durable prototypes with high surface quality, and high detail. We’ve replaced other similar polymers in our operations with the Figure 4 Rigid White.”— David Baker, President, Worxsimple, LLC
Long term environmental stability
Figure 4 Rigid White is engineered to give long-term environmental UV and humidity stability and long-lasting clean white color. This material has been tested for its ability to retain a high percentage of its initial mechanical properties over a period of time. This test data provides real performance conditions to consider for the application or part.
The charts show a sampling of the dataset. The full data sheet includes indoor and outdoor stability data for tensile strength, elongation at break, tensile modulus, and impact strength. The actual data value is on the Y-axis, and data points are % of the initial value.
Chemical and automotive fluid compatibility
Hydrocarbons and cleaning chemical compatibility can be critical to application compatibility. Figure 4 Rigid White parts were tested for sealed and surface contact compatibility per ASTM D543 test conditions and per USCAR2 test conditions. Notched impact strength is shown below. The full data sheet includes additional data tables for tensile strength, tensile modulus, and elongation at break.
