Superior flexible material available in two different colors
Elastico comes in both black and clear and is prominently featured on the latest Stratasys 3D printers.
As multi-material printing becomes quintessential in large manufacturing verticals including automotive, industrial, and consumer goods, the ability to simulate over-molding, living hinges, and gaskets or seals is essential in today’s manufacturing world.
Elastico is a flexible PolyJet photopolymer available in clear and black. It is designed specially for LED curing systems showing improved elongation to break and tear resistance.
Elastico Material Applications
Tooling - Knobs, jigs, grips, seals, gaskets, hoses, handles
Sporting goods, masks, food storage containers
Overmolds and living hinges

Advantages of PolyJet Technology
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine
Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set the standard for finished-product realism.
Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details and smooth surfaces possible.
PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light.
The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.
