Open a world of possibilities, limited only by your imagination. NinjaFlex, a cutting-edge filament for 3D printers, is a specially formulated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that produces flexible prints with elastic properties. Patent pending technology allows for smooth feeding and clean, high-quality printed parts.

 

NINJAFLEXÆ

The Market Leading Flexible Filament

NinjaFlex flexible filament leads the industry thanks to its superior flexibility and longevity compared to non-polyurethane materials. Its consistency in diameter and ovality (roundness) outpaces other polyurethane materials.

Made from a specially formulated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material, this patented technology boasts a low-tack, easy-to-feed texture. The result is uniquely flexible, strong prints ideal for direct-drive extruders.

Suggested Applications: Seals, gaskets, plugs, leveling feet, protective applications.

Tips & Tricks

Safety:
We recommend printing in a well-ventilated area for use with all of our materials. TPEs are capable of releasing small amounts of fumes at high temperatures.

Finishing parts:
Best results are achieved using a dremel or a hot knife for smoothing rough surfaces. It is also tolerant to cutting and light drilling as required for an application.

Connecting printed parts:
Welding is the best option. Plastic welders, soldering irons, wood burners or heat guns are ideal. NinjaFlex will also bond to other plastics using the same method.

Injection molding:
NinjaFlex is available in pellet form and is useable for injection molding in addition to pellet extrusion.

Bridging:
NinjaFlex is not ideal for bridging, though it can handle some small areas in unsupported applications.

Water resistance:
Occasional contact with water will have no adverse effect on NinjaFlex, but long-term exposure will degrade the material to the point in which its elastic properties will be reduced.

UV Resistance:
NinjaFlex is not recommended for long-term continuous outdoor use as it has no UV stabilizer. However, it does boast higher UV performance over ABS & PLA . Short term usage is suitable, with an estimated 4-6 months before seeing any degradation.
