TPU

Resilient and flexible rubber-like filament

TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) is a type of flexible and elastic 3D printing filament. Its rubber-like elasticity, resilience, and durability make it suitable for uses requiring impact-absorption and a soft-touch surface. Examples of TPU 3D printed parts include tubes, seals, bushings and vibration dampeners.

  • Elastic and flexible
  • Wear and tear resistance
  • Durable and resilient
