TPU98A is a specifically formulated flexible filament for easy & high speed printing on both direct and Bowden style 3D printers. TPU98A features an exceptionally high heat resistance (138℃) and can be stretched as far as 450% before reaching its breaking point. TPU98A does not require the use of a heated bed and can even be printed straight onto (clean) glass. TPU98A is the flexible filament for (semi)professional users who do not want to compromise and require a high mechanical flexible filament that prints easily. TPU98A is an extremely usable flex-filament with a wide variety of different applications such as Orthopedic insoles, Prosthetics, Vibration dampers and many more.

TPU98A is available in nearly any type of packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.
TPU98A does not require a heated bed to stick well though you can set it to 0-60˚C for extra reassurance.
TPU98A works superb with a direct drive feeder, or newer types of Bowden FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
By changing the infill / amount of walls you can create the perception of a higher / lower shore than 98A.
Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
We will supply this product with a moisture content <0,2%. After being out of the bag for several hours, redrying in an oven is recommended to eliminate moisture. See page 4 for the recommended drying time and temperatures.
