Flexible 3D printing material is ‘world’s first’

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Materialise has announced the official launch of its new flexible 3D printing material, the TPU 92A-1.

The fully functional material, as demonstrated in the video below, is designed to offer a high tear resistance, high resistance to dynamic loading and high abrasive resistance.

According to Materialise, it also offers excellent durable elasticity and a snappy response.

The TPU 92A-1 is available now and is specified over a temperature range of -20 to 80°C.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am interested in this new material to experiment and eventually to integrate in my models.
I intend to manufacture/assemble scaled down models for customers and there are instances where i need to simulate the flexibility of real size parts.
I currently a 3D printer with 1.75 filament.
Could you forward further information for available spools in that particular dimension as well as various colours available.
If 1.75mm diameter is not in your scope of supply, please advise your prefered size.
Many thanks.
Rom Poteaux.
Hi I am very interested in exploring TPU 92A-1 possibilities in a project that I am developing and would like to know some of the mimimum build tolerances, ie is there a known minimum diameter for a single filament of any length.
