MattFlex 40D is another proposal from Fiberlogy in the area of flexible 3D printing materials (e.g. TPU- or TPE-like filaments). Unlike the much-appreciated FiberFlex, this filament is distinguished by its matte finish, but like FiberFlex, it is easy to print and allows efficient printing at speeds of up to 60 mm/s without compromising print quality.
The matte finish allows you to achieve an attractive model appearance, especially where a lower gloss is expected. MattFlex 40D makes it easy to hide layers, giving your print a perfect surface without any need for further processing.
Great looks and ease of printing are not all that MattFlex has to offer. This rubber-like filament is ideal for numerous applications, both domestic and industrial. High impact strength, elasticity (up to 6 times) and compressive resistance (up to 50%), as well as resistance to chemicals and low temperatures make this filament a versatile material for 3D printing.
APPLICATION IN 3D PRINTING:
RUBBER ELEMENTS OF MACHINES: gaskets, elements that are frequently bent
GADGETS OR THEIR ELEMENTS: phone sleeves and cases, watch-, pulse counter-, pedometer straps
LINKING ELEMENTS: flexible hinges
TOYS OR THEIR ELEMENTS: tires, rubber figures
JEWELLERY: bands, bracelets
- matte finish and low visibility of layers
- 40D Shore hardness
- very good thermal, chemical and abrasion resistance
- printing speed up to 60 mm/s
How to print?
The following parameters are only suggested print settings for this material. To ensure the best print quality, it is necessary to choose the appropriate settings for a specific printer and printing conditions.
< 60 mm/s
glass, masking tape
60°C / 4h
To remove the print easier, it is recommended to heat the bed to 110°C
