Ultrasint TPU supports prototyping and manufacturing applications that require elasticity, shock absorption and wear resistance

Materialise, one of the largest 3D printing companies in the world announced that it has extended its 3D printing materials offering and has become the first company to offer the new Ultrasint TPU 01 through its online platforms, as well as through the company’s offline prototyping and manufacturing services.

Developed by BASF for HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 5200 Series , the Ultrasint TPU combines smooth surface quality and crisp details with excellent mechanical properties. Its durable elasticity and abrasion resistance make it an ideal material for prototyping and manufacturing applications like air ducts, complex tubing, grippers and seals, but also footwear and other wearables.

The material is also highly flexible, provides excellent shape recovery and possesses shock absorption qualities. All of these features make it perfectly suitable for small series of protective housings and covers.

In addition to becoming the first company to offer the material from BASF, Materialise has also been closely involved in exploring and developing applications for the new material.
