Flexible 3D Printing Filament
DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET 3D printing filament is a versatile copolyester that combines the flexibility of rubber with the strength and processibility of thermoplastics. It blends heat and chemical resistance with strength, resilience and durability.
Hytrel® is available in two hardnesses: Hytrel® 3D4000FL with 40D shore hardness and Hytrel® 3D4100FL with 60D shore hardness.
The benefits of Hytrel® include:
- Excellent mechanical properties in all printing directions; comparable to injection molding
- Maintains flexibility after printing
- Low warpage and shrinkage
- Excellent surface aesthetics
- Easy to print
Hytrel® flexible 3D printing filament is suitable for a range of applications in a number of industries, including:
- Consumer products
- Sporting Goods
