TPU filament in natural white or transparent
The degree of hardness is ca. Shore A 92. TPU is an elastic, soft, very flexible material and almost odorless. It is rubbery and resistant against oils and fats, as well as to abrasion. Our TPU does not contain any softening agents, it's hypoallergenic and non skin-irritating. The filament is stable against hydrolysis and microbes. The yield strain amounts to ca. 600%. The density of TPU is ca. thirty percent higher than the density of TPE. The layer adhesion of TPU is very good.
You can print TPU on our FilaPrint print surface.
We recommend to print soft material very slowly, at 15-45 mm/s and at ca. 210 - 240°C. The print bed does not have to be heated. The object to be printed should be well cooled. The wire has to be properly guided between impeller and nozzle, so that the wire does not bend. TPU is best pre-dried, for example in an oven at ca. 80°C for 2-4 hours. Typical applications are transmission belts, profiles, shoes and soles, objects with soft feel as for example mobile phone covers.
