This new line of photo-polymer materials are soft and pliable, and come in two durometers. Geared toward tires, toys, shoes, gaskets, keypads, over-molding and flexible automotive trim components, the materials feel like rubber or silicone, and can stretch to fit other components. TangoBlack™ has a hardness of 61 Shore A, while TangoGray™ has a hardness of 75 Shore A. Both materials have high elongation at break. RedEye RPMhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-617
