Hamburg, Germany — Advanc3d Materials has developed a new TPU that it claims is the most stretchy material available for the selective laser sintering (SLS) process. It can be used on most printers that operate below a printing temperature of 100°C.
AdSint TPU80shA is manufactured using the company’s proprietary synthesis technology. It has a very high elongation at break, at 600%, which results in an extremely stretchy material, the company said.
The spherical particles lead to a smooth surface, and it offers good chemical and abrasion resistance.
