PolyFlex™ is a family of high-quality flexible materials. It provides the perfect solution for applications where high flexibility and durability are required. PolyFlex™ TPU90, created from Covestro’s Addigy® family, is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) based filament designed to provide great flexibility without compromising on printing speed. It also has the ability to resist ultra-violet (UV) light or sunlight.
Flexible & Durable – PolyFlex™ TPU90 features a “Shore A” hardness of 90A, enabling production of softer parts in comparison to PolyFlex™ TPU95. Thanks to 3D printing, a model can also be made more or less flexible depending on its design and infill.
UV Resistance - Ultraviolet (UV) light is probably the most damaging environment for plastics. All applications of plastics which are used outdoors are therefore at risk, from roofing and window frames to vehicles, PolyFlex™ TPU90 offers excellent UV resistance so that the appearance and mechanical properties of your 3D prints are not influenced negatively by UV light.
Wear & Tear Resistance – Featuring an elongation at break result of over 585% combined with excellent wear, tear and impact resistance; PolyFlex™ TPU90 is an extremely durable choice for 3D printing custom over grips, vibration dampeners, footwear, phone cases and end use products.
Formulated For 3D Printing - Using Covestro’s Addigy® family as its base material, PolyFlex™ TPU90 is specifically engineered for 3D printing to combine durability, flexibility and UV resistance. PolyFlex™ TPU90 delivers a soft and flexible 3D printing filament that is compatible with a wide range of desktop FDM/FFF 3D printers.
Uncompromised Quality - Polymakers leading quality control process and rigorous inhouse testing ensure reliable printing and consistency across spools and batches.
