Thermoplastic polyurethane 3D printing service

3D printing with thermoplastic polyurethane material is a cost efficient option for flexible yet sturdy parts. Read more about it below.

SLS Thermoplastic Polyurethane

You can order your parts in thermoplastic polyurethane from our SLS processes. TPU is a flexible material that can be bent and has a shore hardness of 86A.  


General Information SLS TPU is a great material for products that need to be flexible or bendable. If you need a part like a tube that is chemically resistant, highly tolerant to low temperatures, and can be dyed to many colors, TPU is the material for you. It is especially beneficial for medical purposes like arm, wrist, or neck braces.
