- Shore Hardness = 75D
- Abrasion resistance 84% better than PLA and 60% better than ABS
- Chemical resistance to many materials, including naphtha, ASTM Oils #1-3, petroleum and freon
- Consistent diameter and material properties providing reliable, high quality prints
- No heated bed required. Build platform requires same prep as PLA
Tired of fragile 3D printed parts? Armadillo 3D printing filament is a perfect alternative to some of the most common rigid materials on the market. Armadillo filament is a high performing Semi-Rigid Polyurethane material. Made from a specially formulated thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), its industry leading toughness ratings are superior to commonly used materials. It is an excellent material to use for bridging, with virtually no warping issues. When you need a rigid product that can withstand wear and tear and ensure longevity in printed parts, the Armadillo resistance to fracturing makes it a perfect replacement. Suggested Applications include braces, fasteners, gears and protective covers.
Extruder Temperature: 220degC - 230degC
Platform Temperature: Room temperature - 45degC
Glue or blue painters tape is suggested if not using a heated bed.
Top and bottom layer print speed: 15-20 mm/ sec (900-1800 mm/ min)
Infill print speeds: 45-60 mm/ sec (2700-3600 mm/ min)
Layer 2+, use cooling fan, if available.
