EPU 43 and EPU 45 further expand Carbon's idea-to-production platform and offer new opportunities for innovative products in impact protection
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- FORMNEXT -- Carbon, a leading 3D printing technology company, today announced two new cushioning elastomers, EPU 43 and EPU 45. The elastomers add to Carbon's already impressive portfolio of materials as part of its "idea-to-production" platform. They offer new opportunities for innovative products in impact protection, such as padding, gloves and helmets.
EPU 43 is an energy damping elastomer that is soft and offers promising durability under high flex cycle, making it suitable for applications such as comfort padding for helmet liners and safety gloves. EPU 45 achieves the highest level of cushioning performance and printability within the Carbon portfolio, making it the choice for many high-performance applications such as sports padding and seats.
"EPU 43 and EPU 45 are the future of impact protection, offering the performance, comfort and durability benefits offered by Carbon elastomers," said Jason Rolland, Carbon's senior vice president of materials. "EPU 43 and 45 further exemplify our commitment to delivering a robust and complete platform from idea to production."
Carbon's new dual-cure shock absorbing elastomers offer new opportunities and solutions for a number of impact protection needs, including:
Both elastomers are now available in North America, Europe and China. Starting in 19L pack sizes with high-volume production workflows, EPU 45 will also be available in 5L samples to support mid-volume production workflows.
Carbon and Henkel today also made a joint announcement on expanding their strategic partnership to offer new resins for Carbon's idea-to-production platform.
