Rubber-like (Tango & TangoPlus)

Simulated Rubber Material

Flexible Tango™ material exhibits rubber-like qualities to simulate soft-touch coatings, non-slip surfaces, overmolding grips, shoe soles and other applications requiring flexible characteristics.

Tango material is available in black, gray and translucent colors, and in a range of Shore A hardness values comparable to rubber bands, tire treads and shoe heels.

Main Uses

With Rubber-like PolyJet photopolymers, you can simulate rubber with different levels of hardness, elongation and tear resistance. Available in several opaque and translucent colours, Rubber-like material enables you to simulate a very wide variety of finished products, from handles to footwear.

Create realistic prototypes to test and verify any design that includes rubber. Simulate soft-touch coatings, nonslip surfaces, rubber surrounds or overmolding. Test and verify grips, pulls, handles, gaskets or footwear. A range of Rubber-like and Digital Materials let you zero in on exactly the elastomer properties you need.

With the Stratasys J750 and Connex3 systems, you can add colour to the mix for exceptional final-product realism.

Top Applications
  • Exhibition and communication models
  • Rubber surrounds and over-molding
  • Soft-touch coatings and non-slip surfaces for tooling or prototypes
  • Knobs, grips, pulls, handles, gaskets, seals, hoses, footwear

PolyJet™ Technology

Advantages of 3D printing Rubber-like (Tango & TangoPlus) with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine

Proven Technology

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set  the standard for finished-product realism. Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details  and smooth surfaces possible.

Advanced 3D Printing

PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light. The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.

Better ideas, easier sell

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers improve communication and collaboration because they produce amazingly  accurate representations of your ideas that you can share with your team and your clients for a faster, more confident buy-in.
