FDM TPU 92A
FDM® TPU 92A is a thermoplastic polyurethane with a Shore A value of 92. The material exhibits high elongation, superior toughness, durability and abrasion resistance.
FDM TPU 92A brings the benefits of elastomers to FDM 3D printing and offers the capability to quickly produce large and complex elastomer parts. Typical applications include flexible hoses, tubes, air ducts, seals, protective covers and vibration dampeners. FDM TPU 92A is available on the F123™ Series 3D Printers and is compatible with QSR™ soluble support material.
FDM TPU 92A Material Properties
Behaviour and use
FDM TPU 92A is an elastomer material that is ideal for prototyping highly functional, large, durable, complex elastomer parts. The Stratasys F123 Sereies of 3D printers enables the ability to produce elastomer parts with a simple workflow. Unlike competitors, F123's soluble support enables highly complex parts - easily.
