3D Printing Material: CLIP Resin
Here you will find all the information, tricks, know-how, and advice to help you print your 3D model in our CLIP resin material.
Carbon has created a diverse and growing selection of materials that enable product designers and engineers to build functional prototypes and production parts. We currently have seven Carbon materials available for use. The materials were designed to meet common engineering requirements - from the elongation and resilience expected of an injection molded polyurethane elastomer to the temperature resistance of a glass-filled Nylon, and many more.

Our Prototyping Acrylate resin material creates 3D printed objects from a base of photosensitive polymer liquid. That liquid is solidified by UV light, layer by layer, to create rigid and highly detailed prints, close to injection molded plastics. The final product has a naturally smooth and shiny surface.
Our RPU resin material creates 3D printed objects from a base of photosensitive polymer liquid. RPU is very stiff and strong with material properties that outperform ABS plastic and rivals Nylon. This material is perfect for mechanical parts that need to be tough, heat-resistant, and abrasion-resistant.
Elastomeric Polyurethane is a high performance polyurethane elastomer. It exhibits excellent elastic behavior under cyclic tensile and compressive loads. EPU is useful for demanding applications where high elasticity, impact and tear resistance are needed such as cushioning, gaskets, and seals.
Our CE-based resin is a high-performance material with glass transition temperatures up to 225°C [437°F]. Marked by excellent strength, stiffness and long-term thermal stability, CE is useful for under-the-hood applications, electronics, and industrial components.
Flexible Polyurethane is a semi-rigid material with good impact, abrasion and fatigue resistance. This versatile material was designed for applications that require the toughness to withstand repetitive stresses such as hinging mechanisms and friction fits.
