Purple Filaflex is the most elastic filament market, reaching 700% elongation at break. Purple Filaflex filament is a TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) based in polyurethane filament and certain additives. Filaflex filament has a high elasticity, a high coefficient of friction and smoother making it a flexible material with excellent properties for 3D printing.
FilaFlex has excellent binding properties with PLA, ABS, HIPS, Nylon and almost any media. This allows the creation of composite parts that combine hard and soft materials in a single print. Besides the Purple FilaFlex filament it is resistant to gasoline, solvents and acetone. FilaFlex is not toxic but is not approved for medical or food use. FilaFlex not release odors, it is completely odorless and does not produce toxic gases.
Furthermore the Purple FilaFlex filament supports most 3D printers on the market. It has been tested in Makerbot Replicator 3D printers 1 and 2, RepRap Prusa i2 - i3, RepRap BCN, BQ Witbox, Sharebot, Ultimaker 1 & 2, PrinterBot, Mendel and Lulzbot Max. In the case of not being compatible with a 3D printer, Recreus has risen plans to adapt the extruder to optimize the thrust of flexible filament. In the case of not being compatible with a 3D printer, Recreus has designed a specific extruder for flexible and elastic materials, the Recreus Extruder V3.
If you want a flexible material but also with some resistance pick the Soft-Flex PLA filament.
