Somos® Taurus

Expand printing capabilities with an unparalleled combination of thermal and mechanical performance

Robust material with excellent surface quality and isotropy

Somos® Taurus brings the combination of thermal and mechanical performance that previously was not possible with stereolithography materials. Its robustness combined with a charcoal gray appearance makes it ideal for the most demanding functional prototyping and even end-use applications. Parts printed with this material are easy to clean and finish. The higher heat deflection temperature of Somos® Taurus increases the number of applications for the part producer and user.

Printing with Somos® Taurus comes with the added value of excellent surface quality and isotropy, enabling reduced job times for highly detailed parts with more uniform performance. The darker color of Somos® Taurus also gives an added richness to your parts to minimize part finishing and painting making it a great choice for the automotive and aerospace industries.
