TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) and 3D Printing

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is any of a class of polyurethane plastics with many properties, including elasticity, transparency, and resistance to oil, grease, and abrasion.
 
Used in automotive instrument panels, household appliances, footwear, medical devices and more. It can also be used to create stunning 3D printed vases or toys which are soft and elastic, yet strong and durable.

TPU barely ages and is also bio-compatible, one of the downsides is that it cannot handle liquids with high acidity.

VectorX3D uses high quality TPU's for high quality products and models.
