Somos® PerFORM

The industry reference for composite stereolithography resins

Faster to build, easier to process 

Somos® PerFORM is the material of choice for applications that require strong, stiff, high temperature resistant composite parts. With its excellent high heat tolerance, outstanding detail resolution and stiffness, Somos® PerFORM is the ideal material for a variety of applications including tooling, wind tunnel testing, high temperature testing, electrical casings and automotive housings. With the lowest viscosity of any composite stereolithography material, parts made from Somos® PerFORM are faster to build, easier to post-process clean, possess superior sidewall quality and provide unmatched detail resolution.
