TPU Filament Filaflex 60A 'PRO' is the most elastic and flexible filament on the market for 3d printers. This filament is only suitable for the most experienced and daring 3d printing enthusiasts using flexible fialments.
- Shore hardness 60A
- 950% stretch
- Extremely elastic
- Resistant to solvents and fuel
- No hotbed required
- Made in the EU
TPU filament Filaflex 60A, the lowest Shore hardness of all the flexible filaments in the Filaflex range!
Once again, we've achieved it! We've manufactured the most elastic TPU flexible filament on the market for 3D printers with a breaking elongation of 950% and the lowest Shore hardness, 60A.
The flexible filament Filaflex 60A is positioned as the new member of the 'Filaflex' range, standing out for being the most elastic filament of all, with a Shore 'A' hardness of 60.
Like the rest of the flexible filaments in the range (Filaflex 70A, Filaflex 82A, and Filaflex 95A), Filaflex 60A 'PRO' has the property of elasticity. That is, after its stretching, Filaflex 60A returns to its original shape without deforming, as long as the elastic limit of the material is not exceeded.
The flexible filament Filaflex 60A 'PRO' is a highly flexible and elastic TPU filament only suitable for the most 'PRO', but NOT suitable for all-metal hotends of 3D printers, since the filament could become stuck and not flow properly. It is also not recommended to be printed on bowden type extrusion machines or 3D printers. However, if you have any doubt, please contact us for help or advice.
TPU filaments or flexible in the Filaflex range are characterized by having great adhesion to the printing bed. They do not require a heated bed, blue tape, kapton tape, lacquer, or any other adhesive spray. Additionally, they are odorless and resistant to solvents and fuel. Their printing requires different guidelines than rigid filaments. For this, 3D printers must be properly configured.
TPU Filament Filaflex 60A is non-toxic and can be in contact with the skin. Consult for medical or food use. It can be used to create pieces that require very high elasticity such as:
– Insoles: orthopaedic insoles.
– Prosthesis and organ models: prosthetic arms, hands, organs for simulation of surgical operations,...
– Flexible objects and parts for industry, automotive: buffers, gaskets, tires, grippers ...
– Textile parts and accessories: textile garments, fabrics, printing on garments, bags, earrings,...
– Footwear: soles, shoes, sandals, sneakers,...
- Printing temperature
- 215-225°C. 218°C recommended temperature (never approach or exceed 235°C).
- Print speed
- Start at 20mm/s and continue up to 40mm/s.
- Diameter tolerance
- 0.04 mm.
- Layer height
- 0,08-0,25 (for 0,4 mm nozzles). Optimal results 0,2 mm.
- Retraction speed
- 25 -30 mm/s at a distance of 2.5-6 mm.
- Travelling speed
- 160-200 mm/s.
- Shore hardness
Crazy good filament!
I bought this filament a week ago and when I first tried to use it with my Prusa i3, it got stuck inside of the extruder gears. But when I lowered the tension of the gear and placed it by hand into the PTFE tube, it worked perfect!
This is how I think of really flexible filament! Great!
Thank you so much for your feedback and rating. It will be very useful for all those Prusa i3 users who want to print Filaflex 60A, the lowest Shore hardness of all and the most elastic filament. Thanks for sharing that you made it by placing the PTFE tube, very useful! Great contribution and learning for everyone!
