TPU material is short for Thermoplastic Urethane. TPU has excellent high tension, high tensile strength, toughness, and aging resistance. Furthermore, it is a mature environmental protection material. Now people try to make flexible TPU 3d printer filament for 3d printing. You can choose to use TPU 3d printing is in shoe materials, because of its excellent elasticity and wear-resistance.
TPU 3d printer filament specifications

Color: White, Black, Yellow, Red, Green, Blue
Printing temperature: 210~230°C
Bed temperature: 60~80°C
Printing speed: 40-80mm/s
Features of TPU material
- Wide range of hardness, By changing the ratio of each reaction component of TPU, products with different hardness can be obtained. And with the increase of hardness, its products still maintain good elasticity and wear resistance.
- High mechanical strength, TPU products have outstanding bearing capacity, impact resistance, and shock absorption performance.
- Outstanding cold resistance, The glass transition temperature of TPU is relatively low, and it still maintains good elasticity, flexibility, and other physical properties at minus 35 degrees.
- Good processing performance: TPU can be processed by common thermoplastic material processing methods, such as injection molding, extrusion, calendering, and so on. At the same time, TPU and certain polymer materials can be processed together to obtain polymer alloys with complementary properties.
To print flexible TPU filament, that’s better to use direct drive 3d printer machine, because TPU material itself is elastic. And it would lead to blocking the nozzle. With a great setting, you would avoid such a problem. Furthermore, it is best to use a closed FDM 3D printer to avoid moisture. Creatbot F430, and F160 both are great choices to print TPU 3d printer filament.
