Ultrasint® TPU01

Thermoplastic Polyurethane Powder for HP Jet Fusion Printers

Ultrasint® TPU01 is a multi-purpose thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) powder, ideal for the production of parts requiring shock absorption, energy return or flexibility.

Ultrasint® TPU01

Description

This highly processable multi-purpose material is explicitly designed for HP’s 5200 series Multi Jet Fusion printers. Ultrasint® TPU01 offers strong, flexible and durable part performance, combined with an excellent surface quality and level of detail. Typical applications include sports protection equipment, footwear, orthopaedic models, car interior components and various industrial tools like pipes and grippers.

Ultrasint® TPU01 opens unlimited design possibilities: it is extremely easy to print, has a very high process stability, and one of the highest throughputs for flexible materials in the 3D printing market. These unique characteristics make it a perfect fit for serial production with HP Multi Jet Fusion printers.
