DSM introduced the second material in its Somos NeXt family of thermoplastic-like products — Somos NeXt LV Grey.
Somos®NeXt LV Grey produces durable, grey parts with high resolution detail. The ABS-like parts have a high modulus while maintaining a low viscosity for easier cleaning and reduced part processing times.
This third-generation, high-impact Somos material is designed for creating tough, high-quality, complex parts that are more resistant to fracture and cracking than standard SL resins. Somos NeXt LV Grey also offers superior water resistance and thermal properties. It is ideal for use in functional testing and low-volume manufacturing applications, as well as functional end-use performance parts; especially snap-fit designs, impellers, connectors, and sporting goods.
