Two NEW colors of Flexfill TPU 98A April 16 2020
We are pleased to introduce you to Flexfill TPU 98A Carrot Orange and Blue Transparent! Two new colors of our popular semiflexible thermoplastic polyurethane.
A most notable characteristic of this material is its strength and resistance to wear and tear thanks to the excellent layer adhesion. This makes it suitable for various mechanical applications. The final object has a smooth surface. The flexibility can also be adjusted and fine-tuned by the thickness of the printed walls or the percentage of infill.
Other highly regarded properties are chemical resistance to oil and grease, UV resistance, and abrasion resistance. The recommended printing temperature ranges between 220 - 240 °C and the heated bed temperature is in the range of 50 - 60 °C. The important setting is the printing speed, which we recommend setting between 15 - 30 mm/s for the best results.
Flexfill TPU is available in two grades of hardness - Shore A 98 & 92. Shore A 92 is more flexible. Flexfill TPU 98A in comparison to Flexfill TPU 92A can withstand higher temperatures.
We also offer Flexfill TPE which is based on polyolefinic thermoplastic elastomer. The surface of printed objects is matte while the TPU has a glossy finish. TPE is certificated for food and skin contact while TPU is suited for industrial and technical use.

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.

Quick and clean 3D printout removal! March 18 2017
We all know it, your printout is finally done - and firmly stuck. You are forced to use brute force to remove your object from the pad. Knives, spatulas, and other various metal tools are used that destroy your base. That’s history now!
Prototypum has developed a special press pad composed of two parts, a fixed lower layer and a flexible magnetic top.
After printing, the upper part held by magnets can easily be removed and the upper and lower part of the printer can be immediately separated.
The pad consists of two parts, the lower fixed part and upper removable holding magnet. The gentle tread design of the pad leaves a matte surface on the models
| The Prototypum pad package includes:
● A removable top section
● A fixed lower part
● Cleaning wipes
● Feeler gauge
● Flexible scraper
"We do collaborate with people from Prototypum a long time. Working with creative and technologically savvy partners is always a great joy."
