FLEX 45

 FLEX 45 is a very flexible rubber replacing filament for 3D printing. The combination of flexibility, mechanical strength, durability and good resistance to chemicals and extreme temperatures makes it a unique filament. This BIO performance Thermoplastic Co-Polyester has a high carbon content of renewable materials resulting in a less environmental impact. Finally, FLEX 45 exhibits excellent UV resistance.

FLEX 45 features:

  • Very flexible
  • Strong
  • Long term heat resistant
  • Good chemical resistance
  • UV resistant

Additional info:

Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 100˚C. Various other options (also without heated bed) are possible depending on the type and size of the object to be printed.
FLEX 45 can be printed better at a lower speed, due to its flexibility.
FLEX 45 can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

Storage:

Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
