Flexible / Wear resistant / Tough

Dieses Produkt ist derzeit ausverkauft und nicht verfügbar.

Overview

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.

Compatibility: All BCN3D Printers.

Applications

  • Industrial seals, gaskets, sleeves or hinges
  • Soft-touch multi-material models or handles
  • Flexible-joined multi-material models
  • Protective cases Shoe soles, non-slip surfaces
  • Springs, seals and shock absorbers
  • Wheels and rollers

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