Flexible | Wear Resistant | Tough

 

TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) is an elastomeric copolymer, made up of alternating soft and hard blocks, which give hardness and flexibility at the same time. This material is ideal for those applications where flexibility and durability are highly desired.

With Shore-A hardness of 98, TPU is a resistant material for several industrial applications, both mechanical or chemical. Moreover, it’s been especially designed to improve the 3D printing experience.

 

Good corrosion and wear resistance – It’s high oil and wear resistance and outstanding elongation at break make TPU ideal for testing functional and flexible prototypes.

 

Flexible prototype validation – TPU makes manufacturing soft and functional prototypes possible to validate the comfort and the flexibility of the product.

 

Flexible end-use application – TPU is ideal for pipe connections or rigid systems as it absorbs vibrations, expansions and contractions to protect the components from the efforts derived from the operation of the equipment.

Bed adhesion:

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.

 

Recommendations:

Store it in an airtight container with desiccant Dry filament before printing.

Place it in an oven or in a dehydrator at 60-70ºC for 6 to 8 hours.

Recommended sequential printing: print one object at a time because travels leave residual material
