Simulating the strength and stiffness of PEEK, Rigid 4000 Resin is an ideal choice for jigs, fixtures & general load-bearing applications.
Choose Formlabs family of Rigid Resins when prototyping strong and stiff parts that need to resist bending. Parts made from these materials are thermally and chemically resistant and will be dimensionally stable under load, but will experience brittle failure if pushed to their limits.
Glass-filled Rigid 4000 Resin prints with a smooth, polished finish and is ideal for stiff and strong parts that can withstand minimal deflection. Consider Rigid 4000 Resin for general load-bearing applications.
The “4000” in the name represents the material’s tensile modulus. If you need a stiffer material, try Rigid 10K Resin.
*Layer height compatibility can depend on printer model.
NOTE: Rigid 4000 Resin decreases the lifetime of resin tanks. Read more about Resin Tank LT lifetime and Form 3 Resin Tank lifetime.
For more printing and finishing tips relating to Rigid 4000 Resin (V1), please read this article written by Formlabs.
Formlabs materials require proper storage to maximize the usable lifetime. Light and temperature affect shelf life significantly. For optimal results, follow Formlabs guidelines for storing and handling resins.
