“We have spent several years validating the market for 3d printed elastomeric parts utilizing other platforms,” said Aerosport CEO Geoff Combs. “But the top-down DLP printing platform combined with the superior performance of Adpative3D’s photoelastomer products generates a higher ROI to my business while delivering better quality parts to my customers. This is validated by over three months of backlog production capacity already booked for this program.”

Adaptive3D Materials

Adaptive3D has developed a unique product family in the 3D printing industry that solves many of difficulties that come along with the Additive Manufacturing process. Adaptive3D focuses on creating materials used for Additive Manufacturing that:

  • Are Flexible & Tough
  • Are Strain-Tolerant (150%-450%)
  • Have a Broad Range of Durometer (Shore A 20-90)
  • Are a One-Part System
  • Allow Rapid Post-Processing
Elastic ToughRubber ™ (ETR) unlocks the benefits of additive manufacturing to those in the rubber, polyurethane and foam industries. Elastic ToughRubber ™ is simply the toughest AM elastomer on the market. With a tear strength of 38 kN/m, 190% elongation and ultimate tensile strength of 14 MPa, ETR mimics leading injection molded thermoplastic polyurethanes like PEBAX® and Elastollan®. If you make parts from technical foams, rubbers or polyurethanes, ETR is your solution to additive manufacturing end parts and products.
