Know Your Filament - TPU

 

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) filaments durable and flexible with a low friction coefficient. This material is more durable and with greater abrasion resistance. Tråd3D TPU filament is slightly rigid, making it easy to extrude and print and able to withstand much higher compressive and tensile forces than PLA and ABS. Direct drive extruders are recommended for printing TPU filaments.

KEY FEATURES

  • High Durability
  • High Flexibility
  • High Abrasion Resistance
