Ultrasint® TPU 88A

Thermoplastic Polyurethane Powder for durable parts with excellent flexibility

Ultrasint® TPU 88A is a multi-purpose thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) powder, ideal for the production of parts requiring shock absorption, energy return or flexibility. This multi-purpose material is designed to be very easy and stable to process on any PBF equipment, with low to no smoke emissions during printing. Parts printed with Ultrasint® TPU 88A offer strong, flexible and durable performance, combined with an excellent surface quality and level of detail. Parts have a stable white colour, allowing easy finishing through smoothing, dying and coating. Typical applications include sports protection equipment, footwear, orthopaedic models, car interior components and various industrial tools like pipes and grippers
