With a heat deflection temperature of 140°C straight out of the machine, 3D parts printed in EnvisionTEC’s HTM140 mold material can be directly vulcanized in rubber, eliminating the need for a metal master. The high-temperature material is designed to withstand both the heat and pressure of vulcanizing without losing dimensional stability. It also is suited for a variety of applications that require thermal resistance, such as items to be metallized or tested for hot air; hot-water applications; and for making tools for small-run injection molding.

Build time with the mold material is 1" in less than 90 min. at 35 micron resolution in Z. It is available for all the company’s Perfactory and Ultra models.
