TPU

Flexible and stretchable!

TPU is developed to measure the needs of the (semi-) professional user who does not want to compromise on anything.
TPU is a high mechanical flexible filament and is specially designed for easy and high-speed printing. It performs, above all, optimally on both direct and on Bowden 3D printers. This top-filament features an exceptionally high heat resistance (138℃) and can be stretched as far as 450%  before reaching its breaking point. It does not require the use of a heated bed en can even be printed directly on (clean) glass. TPU is an extremely usable flex-filament with a wide variety of different applications. For example Orthopedic insoles, Prosthetics, Vibration dampers and many more.
  • Strong & highly flexible
  • Exceptionally high softening point of 138℃
  • Can be stretched as far as 450%
  • Printable at speeds of >75mm/s
