3D Systems has introduced Accura PEAK Plastic, a newly engineered SLA plastic designed for accuracy and stability during prolonged exposure to elevated temperature and humidity.
Accura PEAK Plastic is suited for automotive, aerospace, and motorsports applications, according to the company. It is a precision material for the production of high-definition master patterns, fixtures and jigs, thermoforming tools and functional models requiring accuracy and dimensional stability over time. Additionally, the company says the properties of this new plastic make it a good fit for the custom production of under-the-hood automotive parts for performance evaluations.
“This new plastic also supports our geographic expansion plans into regions of the world where extreme ambient conditions dictate this level of performance stability,” says Steve Hanna, 3D Systems’ Director of Materials Sales and Marketing.
Designed for use with iPro and Viper SLA Systems, Accura PEAK Plastic is available through the 3Dproparts network.
