PolyFlex™ TPU95 is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) based filament specifically engineered to work on most desktop 3D printers. It has a shore hardness of 95A and can stretch more than 3 times its original length.
We highly recommend to use a direct drive printer to print PolyFlex™ TPU95. A direct drive printer is a printer with the extruder mounted on top of the hot end.
Printing Temperature: 210˚C - 230˚C
Bed Temperature: 25˚C - 60˚C
Printing Speed: 20mm/s - 40mm/s
Retraction Distance: 3mm
Retraction Speed: 40mm/s
Retraction Distance: 6mm
Retraction Speed: 60mm/s
Drying Settings: 65˚C for 8h
(Only if the material has absorbed moisture)
95 refers to the shore hardness of the material: 95 Shore A.
In 3D printing the shore hardness is only an indication on how flexible the printed part will be. However it is important to also take in consideration the infill percentage, number of walls, top/bottom layers and the layer height.
