  • Flexible filament with hardness 96 Shore A
  • Data Sheets and Practical info
  • Webinars 
  • Certification for food and skin contact applications (per request)
  • Only in 1.75 mm diameter
  • The length of Flexfill TPE 96A filaments (1.75 mm, 500 g) is 170 m
  • Because of its chemical structure, this material is sensitive to stress whitening. It is usual, that the stress created by impact or tension causes the microcracks. It can be partially removed by the heat gun. If possible, limit the bending of the printed object. For dynamically stressed parts, it is better to use Flexfill TPU
