PrimaSELECT Flex is a new type of Thermoplastic Co-Polyester (TPC) with very rubber - like characteristics. This material is perfect when you need a strong, but still flexible filament. Our filament has a shore hardness of 45, which means that it´s rigid but still pliable.
PrimaSELECT Flex can create object that are stretchable and can survive punishment that no ABS or PLA could tolerate. Another great thing with PrimaSELECT Flex is it´s great UV and chemical resistance. The material can be bend and stretched but will always go back to its original shape. The one application that most people know this material from is mobile phone cases, so it´s great for usage where you need the material to fit the model, not the other way around.
PrimaSELECT Flex is best used with a heated bed which should be set to 90 - 100˚C it could also be used without heated bed depending on the type and size of your print.
A print speed of 10-30 mm/sec are to prefer due to the materials flexibility.
PrimaSELECT Flex sticks on BuildTak or glass plate coated with adhesive spray or glue stick.
PrimaSELECT Flex is reeled on a transparent spool with 500 g of high quality filament. It´s packed in a sturdy box and packed with silica gel to avoid moister.
PrimaSELECT Flex are available in diameter sizes of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.
Our state of the art factory is equipped with the latest in laser measuring technology to ensure that you will receive a spool of filament with a very tight diameter and roundness tolerance. This in turn makes for a filament that is compatible with most common printers on the market today.
