Flexible Material with Engineering Properties
BigRep’s TPU-based filament Pro FLEX opens up a wealth of possibilities for manufacturers and customers. BigRep is proud to include this material innovation in its range, which is a first for the large-scale 3D printing industry globally.
Pro FLEX has been expertly developed and tested for use with BigRep’s largest industrial 3D printers, the BigRep ONE and STUDIO, on the standard extruders with 1 mm and 0.6 mm nozzles.
Pro FLEX at a glance:
- Flexible (Shore 98 A)
- Temperature resistance up to 100°C
- Very high-impact strength
- UV resistant
- Durable, with excellent damping behavior
- Dynamic properties
- Chemical resistant (for wide range of chemicals)
Pro FLEX is a filament enabling companies to explore a broader range of manufacturing opportunities using 3D printing technology.
For the automotive industry, it enables prototyping for gear knobs, door handles, cable sheathing and more. In the sporting goods industry, there is potential for rapid prototyping of skateboard wheels, sporting shoe shells, ski tips and ends.
The Pro FLEX is based on a medium kind of TPU, with BigRep having mastered the difficult process of extruding the material in a stable manner.
