TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane)

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)


(Thermoplastic Polyurethane)

3D Printed elastomer parts can be used in place of traditionally molded rubber for just about any 3D printed application. And, now, with this specially optimized TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) elastomeric powder, designed for HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology, we can further accelerate the already fast processing times of MJF printers.
Parts created from TPU offer excellent accuracy, unlimited design possibilities, high flexibility and shock absorption, and a well-balanced strength profile. And, with our in-house vapor smoothing technology, we can manufacture parts that are more flexible, stronger, water resistant, and with a surface finish more like that of injection molding.

TPU is valued by engineers for its:

  • High Precision & Resolution
  • Flexibility → High Elongation at Break
  • Well-Balanced Strength Profile
  • Good Shock Absorption
  • High Wear and Chemical Resistance
  • High Thermal Stability
  • High Oil & Grease Resistance

Ideal Applications for 3D Printed TPU

  • Gaskets, Seals, Connectors & Hoses
  • Lattice Design Structures
  • Robotics
  • Automotive Instrument Panels, Shock Absorption
  • Bellows & Ducting
  • Isolation Dampers
  • Harnesses & Fasteners
  • Functional Prototypes
  • Footwear & Sporting Goods
  • Medical Components
