Ultrasint® TPU01 for HP Multi Jet Fusion printers

This highly processable multi-purpose material was explicitly designed as a perfect powder for HP Multi Jet Fusion printers.

As a certified materials partner for HP's Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D printers, Forward AM has created this thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) powder with printing parameters optimized for enhanced handling and to further accelerate the already fast processing times of MJF printers. Ultrasint® TPU01 is only processable in HP Multi Jet Fusion printers.

Ultrasint® TPU01 is especially suited for producing lattice structures opening unlimited design possibilities. Parts created from this thermoplastic polyurethane offer excellent part accuracy, a well-balanced and strong property profile as well as high flexibility and shock absorption at comparatively low cost.
