WEB EXCLUSIVE: An “unprecedented combination of stiffness and toughness” is said to characterize Somos NeXt stereolithography (SL) resin from DSM Somos, Elgin, Ill. Based on the proprietary DMX-SL photopolymer chemistry, Somos NeXt is said to be the most “thermoplastic-like” SL resin yet, suitable for functional prototypes. It boasts a tensile modulus of 343 to 361 ksi, tensile yield strength of 5.9 to 6.3 ksi, elongation at yield of 3%, and notched Izod impact strength of 0.88 to 0.97 ft-lb/in. HDT is 131 to 134 F at 66 psi and 118 to 124 F at 264 psi. It also has low moisture absorption of 0.39% to 0.41%.
