The company has an entire line of materials in the Tango family, and Yermanok says the TangoBlackPlus is the most popular choice for automotive applications. The line offers various levels of elastomer characteristics including Shore scale A hardness, elongation at break, tear resistance, and tensile strength-making it the best choice for applications requiring non-slip or soft surfaces.
While Object offers multiple printers, it is worth noting that these materials can only be used with the Connex line of 3D printers, the largest of which (the Connex500) is a multi-material jetting technology printer featuring a 500 x 400 x 200-mm build tray. It can print up to 14 different materials in a single print job.
