Flexible and Elastic Resins

Produce flexible parts in-house.

Use the Formlabs family of Flexible and Elastic Resins and replace outsourcing and molding of silicone, urethane, and rubber parts.

Ideal for robotics, anatomical models and medical devices, consumer goods prototyping and special effects props and models.

Flexible 80A Resin is the most stiff soft-touch material in the Formlabs library of Flexible and Elastic Resins, with an 80A Shore durometer to simulate the flexibility of rubber or TPU.

Balancing softness with strength, Flexible 80A Resin can withstand bending, flexing, and compression, even through repeated cycles.

The “80A” in the name represents the material’s Shore durometer. If you need a more stiff flexible material, try Elastic 50A Resin.

Flexible 80A Resin is a reformulation of Flexible Resin. Flexible 80A Resin offers more advanced mechanical properties and a new look. 

  • Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns

  • Post-curing required

  • Compatible with: Form 2 (Requires Resin Tank LT); Form 3; Form 3B

Formlabs' softest Engineering Resin, this 50A Shore durometer material is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone.

Choose Elastic Resin for parts that will bend, stretch, compress, and hold up to repeated cycles without tearing.

Key applications include wearables and consumer goods prototyping; medical visual simulation and devices; compliant features for robotics; and special effects props and models.

  • Supports print resolutions: 100 microns

  • Post-curing required
