About Tough 1500 Resin

Tough 1500 Resin is a wonderful material, for high durability, yet stiff prototypes that have many of the same properties as polypropylene. This material is also completely skin-safe, and so can be used for various wearables and medical devices.

Tough 1500 has a low heat deflection temperature, so we don't recommend it for use in hot environments. Use for strong, slightly flexible prototypes that need a smoother surface than can be achieved with Tough PLA.
