First in the World. Shore A5 Rubber-like Resin

Clearly expressed material softness with numerical values

Recently, we quite often see promotional expressions like "Being able to print with soft materials". Often, with only the word "soft", it is difficult to comprehend how soft it is. MITS clearly express resin hardness with values.
The resin hardness is expressed based on the standard of Shore durometer type A.
Sometimes it is referred as "Shore hardness".


Materials and Compatible 3D Printer Models

- S rank rubber-like resin (Shore Durometer A:5) is as soft as marshmallow, aiming to industry's first resin with this hardness.
- A rank rubber-like resin (Shore Durometer A:13) has high stretch ratio and excels in durability. As it performs like real rubber, it is quite popular among users.
- Hardness of rubber-like resin (Shore Durometer A:60) is close to tire's hardness.
*1 Each resin can be used individually or two different resins can be mixed for various softness. Mixing resin is another advantage of Stereolithography.
*2 This range (A: 60 to A: 100) is the hardness of resin which is conventionally mentioned as “soft”.

Hypoallergenic S Rank Rubber-like Resin (Shore Durometer A:5)

This resin is hypoallergenic and less irritating to skin and ideal for prototyping artificial hands or organ model for education, which especially softness is required.

Hypoallergenic A Rank Rubber-like Resin (Shore Durometer A:13)

Our popular A rank rubber-like resin now becomes hypoallergenic, and still maintains same stretch properties. This is easier to use than our conventional resin as less irritating to skin. Suitable for prototyping artificial arms, or organ model for education.
