RS 3D Printer Strong & Flexible Filament Sample Pack
TPC FLEX 45 is a very flexible rubber replacing filament for 3D printing. The combination of flexibility, mechanical strength, durability and good resistance to chemicals and extreme temperatures makes it a unique filament. This BIO performance Thermoplastic Co-Polyester has a high carbon content of renewable materials resulting in less environmental impact. Finally TPC FLEX 45 exhibits excellent UV resistance
- Very flexible
- Long term heat resistant
- Good chemical resistance
- UV resistant
PA12 NYLON is a high performance polyamide filament which natural colour is crystal clear. The polymer nylon PA12 is widely used in the automotive, machinery and engineering industry since it combines mechanical strength, flexibility, transparency, UV resistance and superior chemical resistance. PA12 NYLON is easy to print, has a high impact strength, even at low temperatures, a very high glass transition temperature and has a low water absorption compared with other polyamides which leaves the mechanical properties unaffected. PA12 NYLON is the filament to print objects with a top performance
Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 100ﾟC. Various other options (also without heated bed) are possible depending on the type and size of the object to be printed.
TPC FLEX 45 can be printed better at a lower speed, due to its flexibility
Once you’ve purchased your filament it’s important to store it correctly to maintain its quality. Over time the plastic will absorb moisture from the air, creating small water bubbles in the filament. These bubbles when heated in the extruder nozzle will quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommend
TPC FLEX 45 can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
PA12 NYLON needs to be dried for good 3D print results, A standard air-circulated oven is sufficient. A guideline for drying is 2-3 hours at 110-130ﾟC for 100 gram (Beware that the reel can only be heated up to 60ﾟC. In such cases please double the drying time).
