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.
Racing team, Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing, utilized 3D printing to improve performance and compete against petrol vehicles.
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) collaborated with Covestro to improve the performance and design of the Mono R. Together, the companies built a lighter and less expensive Formula 1-inspired ram-air inlet system, improved the aerodynamic design of its custom-made mirror brackets and created durable steering wheels with custom grips.
