Rock Hill, S.C. – 3D Systems Corp. offers Accura Greystone Material, a new engineered nanocomposite material for its Stereolithography (SLA) Systems. The material is said to deliver exceptional accuracy, stiffness, thermal performance as well as long-term stability.

The gray-colored nanocomposite material was developed for rigorous, high pressure wind-tunnel testing, under-the-hood automotive applications and other uses requiring high thermal resistance, insulating electrical components, and building accurate and stable jigs and fixtures.

Accura Greystone material resists high temperatures and is intended for tooling and other demanding applications.
