TPU Rubber-like

What bends does not break.

Looking for a material with rubber-like properties? Our TPU 1301 is a thermoplastic polyurethane with very bendable, soft properties. It has good physical characteristics and is resistant to wear and chemicals. As a result, it is often used for gaskets, sports soles and footwear, orthopaedic models, hoses, seals and wheels.

Pay attention to

Avoid thin, long walls. The temperature of the process can cause parts to warp. Due to the process, tolerances in building orientation (Z) are higher and holes are slightly elongated. Also check our guidelines.

Do you have any burning questions?

It may be true that 3D printing hasn’t been used as long for production as turning, milling or injection molding. As an engineer, maybe you don’t really have that ‘feel’ with printed parts yet. And you are not confident about how 3D printed products hold up in your machines. We fully understand that! And we will help ease your mind.

So: do you have a 3D printed application in mind? Use a 3D printed part and taste the pudding? See if it will hold up? Then contact Neil for a free sample. On the house!
