Flexibility Meets Durability

Introducing Stratasys FDM TPU 92A - an elastomer 3D printing material engineered for prototyping highly functional, large, durable, complex elastomer parts. Optimized for the Stratasys F123 3D printer series, you can now produce elastomer parts that elongate and compress with an easier workflow. With truly soluble support material you can produce parts that have curves, overhangs, and cavities without having to worry about extensive post-processing, or printing fails. See what's possible with elastomers, get started with a project today.

Overview

Produce Large, Complex Parts

Make accurate elastomer parts rapidly and efficiently with the ease and reliability of professional Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology. The strong, reliable elasticity of FDM TPU 92A materials makes it the best choice for a vast range of applications; some of which include hoses, tubes, air ducts and vibration dampeners.

Material Performance

FDM TPU 92A – a thermoplastic polyurethane, combined with flexibility and stretch with abrasion and tear resistance. Using this material to 3D print provides a superior alternative to less optimal TPU 3D printing technologies and reduces both costly and time-consuming molding or casting methods to produce elastomer parts.
