This is a 1X pcs. 25gm sample for testing and comparing different elasticities to help you find the right material for your project.

True Elasticity

The Filaflex 82A ‘Original’ is a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) elastic filament with a shore hardness of 82A, meaning that it can stretch by up to 650% before breaking. Its greatest advantage is that after stretching, it returns to its original shape without deforming or breaking.

The filaments of the Filaflex range have great print bed adhesion, so they don’t need a heated bed, blue tape, Kapton tape, lacquer or any other spray adhesive. What’s more, they are odorless and resistant to solvents, acetone and fuel. Different guidelines are required for printing with Filaflex. That’s why the 3D printer needs to be properly configured.

TECHNICAL DATA

Basic Print Settings to get started:

Print temperature: 215-250 °C
Print speed: 20-60 mm/s
Diameter tolerance: 0.03 mm
Retractions: from 4-8 mm/s to 40 mm/s. In the extreme case of a clogged extruder, make sure you disable retractions.
Increase the flow if the extrusion of the filament is intermittent, between 105 % – 115 %.
Reduce the pressure of the lever arm that presses the filament onto the motor pulley to avoid clogging the filament and causing blockages.
