Ultrafuse® TPU 95A

Flexible Filament based on BASF Elastollan®

Ultrafuse® TPU 95A has been developed specificially to enable fast and easy printing with a flexible filament for Fused Filament Fabrication. By building on the legacy of BASF‘s decades of experience in flexible materials, this material is based on the established thermoplastic polyurethane Elastollan, standing for maximum reliability, consistent product quality and cost efficiency.

Description

With its outstanding abrasion resistance, Ultrafuse® TPU 95A presents an excellent choice for wear and tear ap- plications. Parts printed with this material set themselves apart by high elongation at break, great layer adhesion and a god resistance to oils as well as industrially used chemicals.

Ultrafuse® TPU 95A comes with a well-balanced profile of flexibility and durability. On top of that, it allows for easier and faster printing then softer TPU grades.

Due to its good printing behavior, Ultrafuse® TPU 95A is a good choice for starting printing flexible materials on both direct drive and bowden style printers.
