Description

The TPU wire in natural/opaque with a hardness of approximately Shore A 92.

TPU is am elastics, soft and very flexible material that is nearly odourless. It resembles rubber and is resistant against oil and fats. It is also extremely resistant to abrasions. TPU does not contain any plasticizers, is tolerated by allergy suffers and does not irritate the skin. TPU has a yield strain of about 600%. The density of TPU is about 30% higher than the density of TPE. The layer adhesion of TPU is very good.

TPU should be pre-dried, for example in an oven at about 80 °C for 2-4 hours.

Typical applications include driving belts, profiles, shoes or shoe soles, objects with a soft touch such as cell phone cases.

We recommend printing soft materials very slowly: at 15-45 mm / s and at about 210-240 °C. The print bed must not be heated. The object should be cooled. The wire must be adjusted very well between the nozzle, to avoid bending.
