THERMOPLASTIC POLYURETHANE(TPU) FLEX92

Introduction

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are essentially plastics with rubber-like qualities, making them extremely flexible and durable. As such, TPE is commonly found in automotive parts, household appliances, and medical supplies.TPE is a broad class of copolymers, Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a particular variety of TPE, and Compared to generic TPE, TPU is slightly more rigid – making it easier to print. It’s also a little more durable and can better retain its elasticity in the cold.
