What is Filaflex?
"Filaflex is the original pioneering and revolutionary elastic filament for 3D printers. It is a flexible TPU filament (thermoplastic polyurethane), which through an innovative manufacturing process, is able to obtain a filament of unparalleled elasticity and texture capable of being printable in an FDM 3D printer."
When and why was Filaflex born?
Filaflex was born in 2013 in Spain, specifically in Elda, a municipality in the province of Alicante. It is a material that arises in response to the need to create a new elastic and innovative material with respect to the proposals that were available at that time in the 3D printing market.

Why choose Filaflex?
Filaflex is an elastic filament (rather than a flexible filament) due to its mechanical properties, which means that, after stretching, the material returns to its original shape without altering its diameter or shape after the cessation of the force.
HIGH PRINT BED ADHESION
Filaflex is characterized by a great adhesion to the printing table, so it is a filament that does not need a hot table, blue tape, kapton tape, lacquer or any other spray adhesive when printing.
Filaflex is a material that is highly resistant to chemicals such as solvents, acetone and fuel. In addition to its chemical resistance, it is impact resistant and a very durable material.
Filaflex is odorless, non-toxic and can be in contact with skin. Its raw materials comply with the European standard and FDA regulations and our internal processes comply with the Good Manufacturing Practices regulation.
