After much testing and development, Airwolf 3D’s flexible filament, WOLFBEND TPU, is ready for release. This material is much easier to print with than other more popular flexible filaments on the market, and is also much stronger. The layer-to layer bond is incredible, and layer separation is non-existent. TPU stands for thermoplastic polyurethane, and has many useful properties, including elasticity, transparency, and resistance to oil, grease and abrasion. It is highly flexible and is offered in Shore 87A.
TPU has many applications including automotive instrument panels, caster wheels, power tools, sporting goods, medical devices, drive belts, footwear, inflatable rafts, and a variety of extruded film, sheet and profile applications. TPU is also a popular material found in cases of mobile electronic devices, such as mobile phones.
The days of struggling with 3D printing flexible filaments are finally over. Airwolf 3D’s new WOLFBEND TPU 3D printing filament is not only the most user-friendly flexible material on the market, but also the strongest. Have you ever wanted to print some handle bar grips for a bicycle, or maybe a gasket or a cell phone case? WOLFBEND is the perfect solution.
