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:
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 requires UV post-cure when finishing for it to be fully cured, please consider the Form Cure to properly cure your functional resin prints.

Formlabs Engineering resins come in a resealable and refillable 1 Litre Cartridge.
Resins should be handled in accordance with Formlabs protocols.
A new resin tank should be used per Resin colour/type for your Form 2 / Form 3 printer.
Never mix the use of resin colours or types with a resin tank.
