TPE - Thermoplastic Elastomer

TPE is a unique new material with very different properties. It's a flexible, slightly stretchy, and strong material. It also provides oil, grease, and abrasion resistance, and a soft texture. Parts printed with TPE have the properties of a durable rubber.

TPE allows you to create an incredible array of new products and designs not previously available with 3D printing. From completely custom prosthetics and wearable tech, to living hinges, grips, flexible machine parts, soft robotics, and much more, the possibilities are endless!

Material Properties

Please note that these properties are heavily dependant on part geometry and printing parameters. When submitting an order, be sure to indicate how the part will be used so we can help meet your needs!
