Here, highly stretchable and transparent UV curable poly(urethane-acry-late) elastomer has been synthesized by reacting urethane acrylate oligomer and two reactive diluents monomers. The synthesized elastomers can be stretched up to 600% and have high transparency of over 90% transmittance. The synthesized elastomers have been applied to several applications. Simple 3D model was printed with a 3D printer on the market. Stretchable ionic conductors were fabricated by a facile method of adding salt with ionic conductivity. Similarly, the resin with β-cyclodextrin, a cage-structured molecule, was cured and foam was generated simultaneously under the UV radiation. This research paves a new way for further development in applications of UV curable transparent elastomer and 3D printable elastomeric material.[Figure not available: see fulltext.].
