Formlabs Tough 2000 Resin for Increased Strength and Performance - Sample Part
Tough 2000 Resin is the strongest and stiffest material in the functional family of Tough and Durable Resins, with “2000” representing the material’s tensile modulus. With this reformulation, Tough 2000 simultaneously improved on elongation, strength, and stiffness, which are typically competing mechanical properties.
Material Safety Data Sheet
| Technical Data Sheet
- Reduced brittle failures: Increased elongation by more than 100%.
- Improved strength and stiffness: Increased flexural strength and flexural
modulus by roughly 15%.
- Better performance at elevated temperatures: Increased heat deflection
temperature by roughly 25%.
- Professional-looking parts: New dark-grey color.
- Strong and stiff prototypes
- Jigs and fixtures requiring minimal deflection
- Simulating the strength and stiffness of ABS
Tough 2000 is the stiffest material out of the Tough and Durable family. If you need a less stiff material, try Tough 1500 Resin or Durable Resin.
Strength, stiffness and elongation are typically opposing properties. Tough 2000 Resin now uses higher performing components such as those in Rigid Resin and Elastic Resin. This resulted in a complete reformulation and a brand new resin superior to Tough V5.
Below is a direct comparison of the mechanical properties between Tough 2000 and Tough V5:
Supports Print Resolutions: 100 and 50 microns
Curing Period: 60min at 70 degrees
Choose Tough 2000 Resin for prototyping strong and sturdy parts that should not bend easily.
Due to its high strength and modulus, Tough 2000 Resin can handle higher stress and will hold its shape better under load compared to Tough 1500 or Durable Resins. When pushed to its stress limit, Tough 2000 parts will bend significantly before ultimately breaking.
All Engineering resins require UV post-cure when finishing for it to be fully cured, please consider the Form Cure to properly cure your functional resin prints.
