RAPID: New Additive Material


Somos NeXt LV Grey is the second material in DSM’s line of thermoplastic-like stereolithography materials developed for additive manufacturing applications. NeXt LV Grey produces durableRAPID 2013: New Additive Material grey parts with high-resolution detail. The ABS-like parts have a high modulus while maintaining a low viscosity for easier cleaning and reduced part processing times. This third-generation, high-impact Somos material is designed for creating tough, high-quality, complex parts that are more resistant to fracture and cracking than standard SL resins. It also offers superior water resistance and thermal properties, and it suitable for use in functional testing and low-volume manufacturing applications, as well as functional end-use performance parts, especially snap-fit designs, impellers, connectors and sporting goods.
