FabPro Flexible BLK is the latest addition to 3D Systems vast materials portfolio, offering stretch and impact resistance to parts coming off its FabPro 1000 3D printer.

Giving parts the look and feel of moulded polypropylene, its material properties include an elongation at break at a reported 93 per cent, as well as high impact strength – making it ideal for a wide variety of prototypes and functional testing.

According to 3D Systems’ report of its ‘unnotched Izod impact strength testing to ASTM D4812 standards’, the FabPro Flexible BLK material did not break.
FabPro Flexible BLK was designed specifically for the 3D Systems’ FabPro 1000 – read our review of the 3D printer here.
