Summa-Flexx50

August 3, 2018

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is elastic and melt-processable and can be colored through various processes. It is an extremely flexible material that is adaptable to many applications. TPUs are linear segmented block co-polymers composed of hard and soft segments. The soft segment can be either a polyether or polyester type, depending upon the application. Its range of physical properties enables TPU to be used as both a hard rubber and a soft engineering thermoplastic.

Summa-Flexx50 is a Polyester-based TPU with a 50 Shore D hardness, a good general purpose grade for FDM with excellent chemical resistance.

Features & Benefits

  • Compatible with PVC and other polar plastics
  • Unaffected by oils
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Good balance of physical properties
  • Good general grade for FDM
