Estane® 3DP TPU for 3D Printing

ESTANE® TPU for 3D Printing

From prototyping to mass production, we are equipped to be your collaborative development partner for your consumer and industrial 3D printing needs by providing applications-driven material development. With commercial grades of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) available, our portfolio of ESTANE® 3D TPU can be used in fused filament fabrication or powder bed fusion 3D printers. 

Our ESTANE® 3D TPU portfolio is engineered to meet strict market requirements for 3D printed parts while still offering material that is flexible and soft when compared to more traditionally used 3D printed polymers.

Benefits of TPU for 3D Printing

TPU is a highly versatile elastomer with unique properties that offer both superior performance and processing stability and consistency. TPU delivers value to product designers and end users by providing a material that can range from being as soft as rubber to as rigid as hard plastics. TPU also offers exceptional abrasion and tear resistance, high elasticity, resistance to oils and solvents, and good flexibility over a wide temperature range.
