MattFlex 40D

Matte flexibility

MattFlex 40D is another proposal from Fiberlogy in the area of flexible 3D printing materials (e.g. TPU- or TPE-like filaments). Unlike the much-appreciated FiberFlex, this filament is distinguished by its matte finish, but like FiberFlex, it is easy to print and allows efficient printing at speeds of up to 60 mm/s without compromising print quality.

The matte finish allows you to achieve an attractive model appearance, especially where a lower gloss is expected. MattFlex 40D makes it easy to hide layers, giving your print a perfect surface without any need for further processing.

Great looks and ease of printing are not all that MattFlex has to offer. This rubber-like filament is ideal for numerous applications, both domestic and industrial. High impact strength, elasticity (up to 6 times) and compressive resistance (up to 50%), as well as resistance to chemicals and low temperatures make this filament a versatile material for 3D printing.

APPLICATION IN 3D PRINTING:

  • RUBBER ELEMENTS OF MACHINES: gaskets, elements that are frequently bent
  • GADGETS OR THEIR ELEMENTS: phone sleeves and cases, watch-, pulse counter-, pedometer straps
  • LINKING ELEMENTS: flexible hinges
  • TOYS OR THEIR ELEMENTS: tires, rubber figures
  • JEWELLERY: bands, bracelets

How to print?

The following parameters are only suggested print settings for this material. To ensure the best print quality, it is necessary to choose the appropriate settings for a specific printer and printing conditions.

 

Nozzle Temperature 210-230°C
Bed Temperature 50-70°C
Closed chamber not required
Fan 50-75%
Flowrate 105-110%
Printing Speed < 60 mm/s
Surface glass, masking tape
Retraction (direct) 1-2 mm
Retraction Speed 10-30 mm/s
Notes To remove the print easier, it is recommended to heat the bed to 110°C
