A filament with two of the most coveted properties in 3D printing, flexibility and conductivity.
Spain-based material producer Recreus’ next challenge is to address the requirements of electrically conductive parts with the release of a new material named Conductive Filaflex.
This announcement follows the need of the “most elastic” filament on the market. Conductive Filaflex is described as a flexible, electrically conductive TPU filament, ideal for manufacturing electrically conductive parts or components and for creating wearable devices.
The new Conductive Filaflex is a flexible filament with a 92A Shore hardness and an electrical resistance of approximately 3.9 Ω-cm. It is a TPU filament with a lot of potential designed for the manufacture of electrically conductive parts and components and ideal for the creation of wearable devices. In addition, it can also be used for printing electrically conductive circuits used in flexible electronics, such as electromagnetic signal isolators, pressure-sensitive buttons, or for interfacing computers, joysticks, arduinos, digital keyboards, trackpads, or even surface electrodes, among many other applications.
From a manufacturing standpoint, it should be noted that Conductive Filaflex melts at a printing temperature of between 245 and 250ºC and must be printed very slowly at a speed of 20 mm/s.
The material is available in 500 gr format, in both diameters (1.75 mm and 2.85 mm) and exclusively in black color.
