High-strength and high-elongation plastic with good impact resistance and an HDT of 100°C

LOCTITE IND406 is a tough, rigid, and durable material that performs well in industrial applications requiring high-temperature resistance. The material offers all-around strength, good impact resistance, and high elongation. IND406 is a great alternative for traditional injection molded plastics such as ABS and PP. The stiffness, toughness, and thermal durability of this material make it ideal for the production of end-use parts across all industries.

Material Properties


Tensile Strength 55 MPa
Tensile Modulus 1610 MPa
Elongation at Failure 25 %
Heat Deflection Temperature at 0.455 MPa 107°C

HTM 140

Molding material designed for high-temperature and high-pressure applications

ETEC’s HTM140 High-Temperature Mold Material is an ideal material for manufacturers; with a heat deflection temperature of 140°C straight out of the machine, high-definition parts printed in HTM140 can be directly vulcanized in rubber, eliminating the need for a metal master. Similarly, it can be used in a variety of applications that require thermal resistance such as items to be metalized, high-temperature oil and gas applications or tools for small-run injection molding.

Material Properties


Tensile Strength 56 MPa
Flexural Modulus 3350 MPa
Elongation at Failure 3.5 %
Heat Deflection Temperature at 0.455 MPa 140°C


High-temperature resistant material for end use parts and tooling, including molds

LOCTITE® 3D IND147 delivers high stiffness and toughness while withstanding temperatures up to 230°C. This material is an excellent choice for a range of applications, such as tooling (molds) and the production of high-temperature end use parts.

Material Properties


Tensile Strength 75 MPa
Tensile Modulus 3192 MPa
Elongation at Failure 3%
Heat Deflection Temperature at 0.455 MPa 238 C

Evonik INFINAM® ST 6100 L

Stiff, tough, heat-resistant material with properties similar to a glass-filled nylon

Evonik INFINAM® ST 6100 L is a stiff, tough, heat-resistant material that can be printed in high resolution with excellent surface finish for end-use parts. The material is ideal for a variety of applications, including housings, manufacturing fixtures, electrical connectors, alignment jigs and more.
