TPU, Thermoplastic PolyUrethane, it is environmentally friendly material with excellent properties of high tension, high tension, strength, toughness and aging resistance. TPU has been widely used in medical and health, electronic appliances, industry and Sports, etc. The unique feature is higher elasticity, TPU is the most used 3d printing flexible material now.
Tpu also has the properties of high strength, good toughness, wear resistance, cold resistance, oil resistance, water resistance, aging resistance and weather resistance that other plastic materials can not match. at the same time, it has a high waterproof moisture permeability, wind, cold, anti-bacterial, anti-mildew, warm, anti-uv and energy release and many other excellent functions .
According to molecular structure, TPU could divide into polyester and polyether type. The shore hardness of tpu filament could range from 60A to 80D.
