Cleveland, Ohio – Three grades of Estane 3D TPU for fused filament fabrication 3D printing applications are now available in the Ultimaker Marketplace. Ultimaker specialises in desktop 3D printing.
Ultimaker’s partner raw material suppliers can upload profiles compatible with its printers to the Marketplace. The three grades Lubrizol has added have applications in industrial jigs and fixtures, prototypes, end-use parts, and flexible parts such as orthopaedic insoles.
‘Lubrizol’s grades open the door for a great deal of possibilities for end-users printing with TPU, varying from outdoor parts with cold flexibility, to parts that require long-term heat performance,’ said Bart van As, materials product manager at Ultimaker. ‘Filaments made from Lubrizol’s Estane 3D TPU are among the softest and most flexible materials that can be printed on Ultimaker 3D printers.’
The three Estane grades now available on the Marketplace are 3D TPU F94A-055 OR HH PL,3DP TPU 98A and 3DP TPU F70D.
