Clariant TPU 95 3D printer filament allows customer the opportunity to print flexible and soft material on numerous 3D printers. Clariant’s TPU 95 3D printer filament uses a Shore A 95 TPU with high tensile strength and excellent wear resistance. Clariant adds Licolub® WE 4 and Hostavin® B-CAP® via a Renol® masterbatch to provide an optimized Shore A 95 TPU for 3D printing and end use application.
Benefits
  • High elasticity
  • High abrasion resistance
  • High shear strength
  • Good interlayer adhesion
  • Improved lubricity for better printability
  • Resistance to ultraviolet radiation

Applications*
  • Prototypes
  • Parts requiring softness
  • Gaskets
*Subject to detailed product specifications.
Note: TPU’s with different shore hardness and/or chemical class are available by request.
