TPU is a lightweight polyurethane-based plastic with rubber-like properties. This makes TPU particularly suitable for the production of flexible objects. At the same time, TPU impresses with its high impact strength in combination with good chemical resistance. Areas of application include textiles or flexible prototypes.
Note: for parts with complex geometries or with lattice structures and the like, the TPU from SLS is more suitable, as this, in contrast to FDM 3D printing, does not require any support structures during processing. Read more about the material TPU SLS
