In September 2023, Carbon announced the release of EPU 46 — its newest elastomer material. EPU 46 offers a combination of high-performance material properties, excellent durability, and a myriad of rich color options, to enable the customizable production of a wide range of premium products like saddles, footwear, and grips. EPU 46 is designed to meet the growing demands of requirements for a broad spectrum of industries, with a focus on performance, comfort, aesthetics and more. It offers customers the ability to finetune the material stiffness without compromising its printability or changing its material properties. Additionally, EPU 46 further pushes Carbon’s efforts in sustainability as the elastomer contains 40% bio-based material and is designed for solvent-free spin cleaning and resin reclaim to minimize production waste.
