Protodynamix - Das Material



TPU is short for thermoplastic urethane and is a urethane-based elastomer.

Our TPU material is processed in the laser-sintering process, which results in components with rubber-like properties.

A typical area of ​​application of TPU is the production of components that should have rubber-like properties but still require a certain dimensional stability. (complex tube geometries, shoe soles, etc.)


Features of TPU at a glance:

  • Elastomer material

  • High elongation at break (500-600%)

  • Very good abrasion resistance

  • Shore A hardness of approx. 90

  • Very good long-term stability
