Material

PerFORM

A resin with ceramic particles, PerFORM produces strong, stiff parts with high thermal resistance. It is ideal for functional prototypes for demanding applications such as wind tunnel tests and high-heat tests in the aerospace and automotive industries. PerFORM's superior sidewall quality and excellent detail resolution also make it a good choice for rapid tooling for injection molding.
