Fiberflex 40D

PICK UP THE PACE

Fast and precise. Yes, it’s possible. FIBERFLEX 40D is the best proof of this. With this flexible material with Shore hardness of D40 you can print at the speed of 45mm/s without worrying about the quality of the print. What’s more, thanks to FIBERFLEX 40D you will discover that printing with flexible filaments doesn’t have to be difficult. Feeding it to the extruder will be extremely easy and the printed layers will stick together well.

Your prints will have such properties as: high impact resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical and abrasion resistance. Because of that FIBERFLEX 40D can be used for both amateur and professional applications.
