PrimaCreator EasyPrint FLEX TPU

    • EasyPrint FLEX TPU is our latest flex material with focus on durability, flexibility and ease of use. It is a TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethene) and is one of the most common used polymers for flexible materials. TPU has many great benefits as it has minimal warping, low shrinkage, is very durable and resistant to most chemicals and oils.

      • Shore hardness of 95 A, very easy to print
      • Perfect spooling, no more tangled filament
      • Easy to print with wide temperature span of 185° – 220° C
      • Perfect roundness
      • Perfect diameter tolerance within +/-0.05mm
      • Smart length indicator on spool
      • UV resistant

  • EasyPrint FLEX TPU is our latest flex material with focus on durability, flexibility and ease of use. It is a TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethene) and is one of the most common used polymers for flexible materials. TPU has many great benefits as it has minimal warping, low shrinkage, is very durable and resistant to most chemicals and oils.

    EasyPrint FLEX TPU has a shore value of 95 A which you can compare to the rubber heel of a shoe or a shopping cartwheel. Thanks to the relative high shore hardness it`s also very easy to use with most printers. Even with printers that doesn`t have a direct drive, like Ultimaker or BCN3D Sigma for instance.

    The “semi flex” formula in our material is wonderful. You can control the print with infill. For instance, if you use less infill you will get a flexible, almost collapsible structure, that you can squeeze together but it will always return to its previous shape. If you use more infill you will get a print that is more like hard rubber (think care tire). This, of course, opens for a very wide range of applications such as handles for bikes, shock absorbers, rubber seals, and insoles for shoes. Our TPU boasts with a massive 400% elongation at break.

    Due to the very low shrinkage EasyPrint FLEX TPU is very easy to use in all FDM/FFF printers. The chances of warping are very small with EasyPrint FLEX and it works well without a heated build plate, but for larger prints and the absolute best results we recommend a heated build plate.  A temperature setting of 40-60°C, and a coat of PrimaFIX will make for a very good adhesion.

    Please keep in mind that TPU is hydroscopic, meaning that it will absorb water if not stored correctly in a bag with silica gel bags or similar. If this should happen, you can always dry it in your oven for about 1 hour in 70° C and the TPU will be as good as new.

    Flex materials is best printed in slow speeds around 15-30mm/s.

    Tips for good results:
    Print in low speeds, 15-30mm/s
    Use heated bed if you have one
    Keep the filament dry at all times

     

    • Full weight!
      On every spool of EasyPrint you will have a perfect spooled filament with a weight of 50 g, 500 g or 1 kg depending on what your needs have. When you compare price and performance EasyPrint is hard to beat!
       
    • Wide Temperature span
      Thanks to the high quality and lack of additives you can print this filament in a very wide temperature range. Recommended temp is 180° – 230°
       
    • Perfect diameter tolerance
      EasyPrint is made to be one of the best on the filament market. With a diameter tolerance of +/-0.05 mm and continuous roundness. The filament is controlled during the whole manufacturing process to assure that you will receive a perfect spool of filament each time you order. This will improve your prints and will also not cause any clogging
       
    • Continuously monitored
      During the manufacturing process laser is being used to measure the filament to ensure that we live up to our promise for a tolerance of +/-0.05 mm
       
    • Perfect spooling
      When you first lay your eyes on a spool of EasyPrint you will notice the perfect spooling. Each layer is perfectly spooled with no overlaps or crossing of the previous layer. This ensures that the material will be tangle free and will not cause you any trouble even if you have very long prints planned.
       
    • Length indicator on spool
      Every spool of EasyPrint has a very smart length indicator on it. This makes it much easier for you to keep track on how much filament that is left on the spool.
       
    • EasyPrint sticks on BuildTak, PEI or glass plate coated with adhesive spray or glue stick. There´s no need for a heated plate but if you have it we recommend a setting of 40°- 60°
       
    • EasyPrint comes on a clear spool that is vacuum sealed with desiccant to maintain low levels of moisture content.
       
    • EasyPrint is available in different diameters, weights and comes in many vibrant, beautiful colors, both solid and transparent.
