Flexible 3D Printing Material
Materialise Presents a New Thermoplastic Polyurethane
Ultrasint TPU 90A-01, a thermoplastic polyurethane from Materialise N.V., Leuven ,Belgium, is a functional and flexible material with high elongation at break. It combines durable elasticity with good wear resistance and abrasion resistance, making it an appropriate material for prototyping and manufacturing applications that require good shock absorption and rubber-like elasticity over a wide range of temperatures. Produced with Multi Jet Fusion technology, Ultrasint TPU 90A-01 exhibits smooth surfaces and high detail.
The new material can be used e.g. for ducts, complex tubing, grippers, seals, gaskets, protective housing and dashboard covers and wearables, e.g. footwear soles and swimming or skiing goggles.
The new thermoplastic polyurethane will replace TPU 92A-1 (SLS).
