TPE +Pro 1.75mm Filament, Premium 3D Printer Filament

Description

TPE, or thermoplastic elastomer, is a category of rubber-like plastics that are great for printing anything that needs impact or vibration resistance, non-slip characteristics, or just plain old flexibility.

Used in dampeners, non-slip feet, phone cases, and the like, TPE deforms and compresses easily to counter loads, making it incredibly durable. Although sometimes tricky to print with, the results are often well worth the struggle.

What is TPE filament?

TPE filament, also known as thermoplastic elastomer filament, is a flexible 3D printing filament made from a thermoplastic elastomer. TPE is a type of material that combines the properties of rubber with the processing advantages of thermoplastics. TPE filaments are available in various grades that provide different properties, such as hardness, flexibility, and durability.

TPE filament is a popular choice for 3D printing because it has a rubber-like texture and is highly resistant to abrasion, impact, and chemicals. It can be printed on most 3D printers and has a low melting point, typically around 200-230°C.

One of the benefits of printing with TPE filament is that it can be easily printed in different shapes and sizes, and it can be used to create objects that require some degree of flexibility or elasticity, such as phone cases, toys, or medical devices.

Another benefit of TPE filament is that it can be easily processed and post-processed, allowing for a variety of finishing techniques, such as sanding, polishing, or painting, to create customized and unique objects.

Recommended Print Settings

  • Nozzle temperature: 190-240 °C
  • Bed temperature: Unheated-70 °C
  • Print speed: 5-50 mm/s
  • Retraction: Minimize or disable
  • Bed adhesion: Painter’s tape, glue stick, or hairspray recommended

TPU vs TPE

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) is a term that refers to a group of different flexible thermoplastic materials (including TPU), while TPU is a term that refers only to thermoplastic polyurethane. TPU is more rigid and strong than TPE-branded filaments, which are usually soft and pliable with a shore hardness between 44A and 70A.

TPU also has greater abrasion resistance than other TPE flexible filaments. TPUs will also print with a smoother surface finish than TPEs. Some 3D printer users may prefer TPUs because they produce less stringing, warping and curling than TPE filaments.

Since TPEs refer to multiple different thermoplastic materials, its features and functions vary significantly. Some are formulated with higher heat tolerance. Some are more resistant to water. Some are made to withstand acids or solvents. The properties of TPE filaments greatly depend on what polymers the specific brand was made from.
