Carbon, a product development and manufacturing technology company, today announced the release of EPX 150 — a new, high-performance rigid material that will be uniquely available on Carbon’s idea-to-production platform. It enables new capabilities in applications requiring high temperature and chemical resistance such as electrical connectors, spray nozzles and autoclavable medical devices. EPX 150 is now available in Europe and North America.

EPX 150 offers better temperature and chemical resistance than EPX 82, and better toughness and overall usability than CE 221. As Carbon’s fastest-printing high-temperature resin to date, it is designed to print complex features at faster speeds, making it suitable for parts with fine features and stringent tolerances. 

With the addition of EPX 150 to Carbon’s idea-to-production platform, users will now have a combination of high-performance material properties, excellent resolution, and attractive economics to make the production of complex, rigid parts achievable in shorter times, without molding investments. Benefits of EPX 150 include: 

  • Thermal Performance:  Heat deflection temperature (0.455MPa) of 155°C and the capability of extended use at 125°C.

  • Offers exceptional chemical resistance at elevated temperatures for automotive/industrial applications, particularly to polar fluids like water, coolant/antifreeze and aqueous washing fluids. 

  • For medical applications, EPX 150 is capable of withstanding 250+ cycles of steam sterilization autoclave cycles with no significant mechanical and visual changes. 

  • Low dielectric constant and loss factor suitable for advanced electronic applications

  • Designed to print fine complex features at faster speeds, with improved cleaning, and longer pot life, to enable higher production efficiencies.
