INKBIT TEPU 50A thiol-ene polyurethane-based elastomer with a Shore 50A durometer and low compression set provides improved UV stability and strong chemical compatibility. Product was developed in response to customer requests for a Shore 45-55A elastomer that could accurately produce intricate detail in a wide range of geometries with excellent surface finish and elastic resilience. Suitable for demanding applications that require a medium-soft shore hardness and optimal sealing and compression attributes and can be used for replacing or prototyping soft rubber components, silicones, or molded TPUs that require precision and detailed features. Its suitability extends to various applications, including grommets, window and door seals, soft grippers, gaskets, and similar soft elastic components.
