What is TPU hardness?

We have chosen the 4 most common flexible 3d printing materials currently available, they are: NinjaFlex – Shore hardness: 85A. Flex EcoPLA – Shore hardness: 45D. Our TPU – Shore hardness: 95A.

Is NinjaFlex TPU or TPE?

As the first flexible material on the market, NinjaFlex TPU filament has proprietary technology that boasts a low-tack, easy-to-feed texture ideal for direct-drive extruders. The material has abrasion and chemical resistance and results in consistent printed parts.

Is TPU filament fuel resistant?

A quick investigation of the chemical resistance for the TPU filament showed an “A” resistance to gasoline and I quickly set off to create the CAD model for the simple gasket.
