What do Notched IZOD of 14 J/m, post-cured, and ASTM D 256-10 actually mean? What’s the difference between strength and modulus? How do they relate to common materials that we come across every day, and why does it matter to you?

Formlabs 3D Printing Material properties such as chemical, optical, mechanical, thermal, or electrical characteristics reflect how a specific material will behave under certain conditions. As quantitative metrics, these attributes can help you assess the benefits of one material versus another for a specific use case.

Included in the Formlabs 3D Printing Material white paper

In the following white paper, Formlabs describe the most widely used mechanical and thermal properties, their importance for specific applications, and how Formlabs 3D printed materials relate to plastics manufactured with traditional methods to help you make the right material decisions.

Content topics include:

  • The Most Common Mechanical and Thermal Properties
  • Tensile Strength
  • Young’s Modulus
  • Elongation
  • Flexural Strength
  • Flexural Modulus
  • Impact Strength (IZOD)
  • Indentation Hardness (Shore)
  • Compression Set
  • Tear Strength
  • Water Absorption
  • Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT)
  • Vicat Softening Point
  • Thermal Expansion Coefficient
  • Material Properties in Stereolithography (SLA) 3D Printing
  • Comparing Formlabs Resins
