Professional conductive & flexible 3D printing filament

 

Don´t need the conductivity?

Well the conductivity is great for some things but perhaps not your first choice?  Then consider this:

This filament will give you some really nice benefits if the conductivity is not an disadvantage for your 3D printed design:

  • The material composition eliminates “stringing / webbing” issues.
  • The hardness of 95 shore A and the carbon black filler makes for great print abilities.
  • The carbon black filler is an excellent UV stabilizer thus the prints are built to last in very harsh environments.
  • The matte black surface finish has a very exclusive look.
  • The material feels very nice and dry to touch.
  • The elongation at break is only 250%.

“It prints really really well. In fact I like it more than ninjaflex in a lot of ways.”

– Andrew Troy Stott  “makerdad” https://instagram.com/disruptityourself

“We’ve been using the conductive TPU filament, and it works great! We used the conductive TPU filament to prototype injection molded designs involving overmolded conductive silicone. It worked flawlessly, and was easy to use in our FlashForge Creator Pro.”

– Steve Trambert, Mechanical Engineer at http://pavlok.com

“We use the Palmiga Innovation conductive TPU filament to demo the ZYYX 3D Printers capabilities in printing flexible materials. In addition to the very useful conductivity property, it also gives excellent printing results!”

Endurance

  • The carbon black filler is an excellent UV stabilizer thus the prints are built to last in very harsh environments.
  • Excellent performance for greases, lubricants, some solvents and oils.
  • The abrasive resistance is really high and the elongation at break is only 250%.

Easy

  • The material composition eliminates “stringing / webbing” issues.
  • Excellent filament tolerances secure accurate prints.
  • The hardness of 95 shore A and the carbon black filler makes for great print abilities.

Exclusive

  • The matte black surface finish has a very exclusive look.
  • The material feels very nice and dry to touch.
  • Obviously the conductive abilities adds some new dimensions to the equation.

The filament is made from a special thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) compound material with a carbon black filler witch is bound in the base polymer. The information in this data sheet represents typical values obtained by Palmiga Innovation for the original standardized sample and should not be regarded as a fixed specification for all filaments. PI-ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black is a product under development and Palmiga Innovation reserve the right to change the properties at any time.

3D printed pressure sensitive button in PI-ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black (only 9V battery + LED in serial)

 

This professional conductive and flexible 3D printing filament is made of a rubber-like TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane) compound material with a carbon black filler witch is bound in the base polymer, it is the result of the inventor Thomas Palm´s (Palmiga Innovation, http://palmiga.com/) desire to 3D print some inventions of his.

Now you can enjoy this conductive and flexible 3D printing filament as well, go ahead and 3D print lots of inventions of your own!
