Summa -Flexx50 is a polyester-based TPU with a 50 shore D hardness; therefore, being a good general-purpose grade for FDM. Summa-Flexx50 is chemical and abrasion resistant, and compatible with PVC and other plastics. The tensile strength between a printed part and injection molded part is within 4%.


Semper-Flexx98 is a polyester-based TPU with a 98 Shore A hardness, perfect for applications that are exposed to compressive loading or require good compression. Semper-Flex98 is highly crystalline with low warpage and shrinkage. This product is a good general grade for FDM and is easier to print.


Vexi-Flexx70 is a polyether-based TPU with a 70 Shore D hardness containing excellent hydrolytic stability with good mechanical properties. This TPU has low temperature flexibility, good abrasion and tear resistance, and durable against microbial attack.


All three products are available in 1.75 and 3 mm sizes , and packaged individually in 1kg reels. Reels ranging from 0.5kg-30 lbs. are available upon request and packaged per box. Current colors are black and natural; however, more colors such as blue and green are coming soon.


All products are derived from a Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), which is elastic, melt-processable, and can be colored through various processes. TPU’s are linear segmented block co-polymers composed of hard and soft segments. Soft segments can be either polyether or polyester. A range of physical properties enabels TPU to be used as both a hard rubber and a soft engineering thermoplastic.
