DSM Arnitel TPC ID 2045 2.85mm (1KG)
The DSM Arnitel TPC Filament is an incredible combination of flexibility, temperature resistance and strength. The Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) material is a flexible material and is the first of its kind on the market to be used with fused filament fabrication 3D printing (FFF). It is a highly flexible material which is perfect for use in applications where the material must be able to resist UV or chemicals. In the case of the HT version (high temperature), the material is also able to resist higher temperatures for long periods of time. The material is able to withstand 175°C for 1000 hours or 190°C for 500 hours before becoming deformed due to the heat. Arnitel is a soft and flexible material which can also bring speed to your 3D printing production, with its ability to load onto the 3D printing machine faster than other TPC materials. Due to its slower crystallisation behaviour, the material also has higher performance characteristics in the form of excellent inter-layer adhesion. Arnitel is also 100% recyclable and is made from 50% bio-based feedstock.
