Fillamentum Industrial introduces Flexfill TPE December 06 2019
Fillamentum Industrial expands its product portfolio with new Flexfill TPE, a thermoplastic elastomer based on polypropylene.
In comparison to Flexfill TPU, which is thermoplastic polyurethane Flexfill TPE has an entirely different set of properties. We are offering two levels of hardness for the TPE – Shore 90A and Shore 96A.
The matte surface of TPE is pleasant to touch in compared to more technical material, the TPU, which has a glossy finish. Furthermore, the other indispensable qualities of this material also include a chemical resistance such is resistance to water, acids, alcohols, and alkalis. TPE is certificated for food and skin contact.
With excellent printability, Flexfill TPE is a high-quality 3D printing filament that keeps its dimensional stability with strong interlayer adhesion resulting in a sleek matte finish.
We strongly recommend printing temperature in a range of 225-245 °C, the temperature of hotbed 50-60 °C, and the printing speed in 15-25 mm/s, depending on the printer.
Fillamentum brings this filament to the market in cooperation with Resitech GmbH, part of Westlake Global Compounds.
