Launch of the first fully-functional flexible material in 3D Printing by Materialise

By on March 22, 2013

Materialise is proud to announce the official launch of a new, highly flexible and durable material for 3D Printing: TPU 92A-1. Designers and engineers have been challenging Materialise to come up with a flexible 3D Printing material that is durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of an end-use product, and TPU is their response. The most notable of these challengers was Dutch fashion designer and guest member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, Iris van Herpen, who is known for pushing the boundaries of 3D Printing in the world of high fashion. In January this year, TPU 92A-1 made its debut on the catwalk during Iris van Herpen’s Voltage Haute Couture show during Paris Fashion Week.
