Flexible filament is based off of TPU, which is Thermoplastic Polyurethane. In the domain of 3D printing, the two most popular filaments PLA and ABS lack a crucial physical property – flexibility. TPU 3D printing filament is a soft flexible plastic that retains its original shape and form. It is a bendable yet strong and durable plastic.
Recommended printing settings:
Extrusion Temperature: 200 – 220°C
Heated Bed Plate: not mandatory
Print Speed: 30 – 40 mm/s
Generally, Flexible filaments is better printed on direct extruders (where a geared motor pulls filament directly into the hot end. ) Flexible filament will adhere well to most surfaces such as aluminum, glass, blue painters tape, and Kapton tape.
There are many uses for TPU as a plastic. TPU plastic is used in car parts to power tools and medical devices. It is also very popular in protective cases for mobile phones and tablets due to its high flexibility. The flexible filament printed objects also has the flexibility.
TPU plastic is very resistant to oils and grease but must be kept away from solvents, acids, and fuels. Cleaning a printed part is easy and can be accomplished with mild soap.
As with all 3D filaments, please store in a cool airtight container. Flexible TPU filament has some water resistance, but the product will degrade if left submerged in water.
