Sometimes, one material at a time just isn’t enough

PolyJet offers the unique ability to print parts and assemblies made of multiple model materials, with different mechanical or physical properties, all in a single build. So you can confidently order parts of unparalleled complexity, made of several materials and colors, and with the finish of a high-quality end product.

How Does PolyJet Work?

PolyJet works by jetting photopolymer materials in ultra-thin layers onto a build platform. Each photopolymer layer is cured by UV light immediately after it is jetted, producing fully cured models that can be handled and used immediately, without post-curing. The gel-like support material, designed to support complicated geometries, is subsequently removed by water jetting.

Why choose PolyJet?

PolyJet technology enables horizontal layers of just 16 µm (0.0006"), fine details, and ultra-thin walls down to 0.6 mm (0.024") depending on the geometry of the part. That means PolyJet is capable of building very precise mechanical components, offering you high-quality prototypes for a shorter time to market.

Materials for PolyJet

Objet VeroWhitePlus, VeroCyan, VeroMagenta

This set of Objet Vero materials is rigid and opaque, with a high level of surface detail and available in multiple colors. These PolyJet materials are general-purpose resins, offering enhanced mechanical properties and the ability to withstand bending. We offer three opaque colors in the Objet Vero line, white, cyan and magenta. These materials can be blended with others on PolyJet machines to achieve your desired level of rigidity, translucency or heat resistance.

Objet VeroClear

VeroClear is a transparent, rigid material that offers exceptional surface detail, in common with the Objet Vero family of materials. The high dimensional stability and smooth surface quality of VeroClear make it an ideal material for fine-detailed model building, or prototypes for clear parts. With its transparent appearance, VeroClear is also ideal for parts which require visibility of liquid flows. To create an endless variety of translucent shades or patterns, VeroClear can be combined with colored materials on PolyJet machines.

Objet TangoPlus, Objet TangoBlackPlus

The Tango family of materials is a set of flexible, rubber-like resins for PolyJet. Objet TangoPlus is translucent while Objet TangoBlackPlus is a vivid black. Both Objet Tango materials offer exceptional elongation at break, making them suitable for prototypes of rubber components like seals, non-slip surfaces, overmolding, etc. Tango materials can be combined with Vero materials to simulate specific Shore values, influence tensile strength and tear resistance, or simply to customize colors.

We also offer six composite materials with preset combinations of mechanical properties: Shore A40 - Shore A50 - Shore A60 - Shore A70 - Shore A85 - Shore A95.
