A wealth of possibilities is opened up by post-processing – enhancing the appeal, durability and overall quality of your 3D printed part. Besides chemical etching to smoothen TPU parts, the right coating can improve their properties significantly, enhancing surface haptics, abrasion resistance, UV protection, chemical resistance, dirt repellency and even breathability. In short, with the right coating you can give your TPU part the decisive edge.
Since April we have offered Ultracur3D® Coat F – a flexible coating specially developed to give TPU parts the final colorful touch. With convincing adhesion and outstanding elasticity, it is the perfect fit for applications like lattice structures. The successfully completed Rossflex test of 100,000 bending cycles proves its durability and strength even for demanding applications.
Going beyond the standard colors black, white, transparent, and silver-metallic, customized color shades can be developed to address individual customer requirements.
