Arnitel® offers a unique blend of extreme flexibility, high temperature resistance and strength, making it suitable for a broad range of applications, from sports mouth guards to automotive air-fuel management components.
This high-performance Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) was the first of its kind on the market for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) applications. It is a highly flexible material for applications that need to resist UV or chemicals or - in case of the HT version - withstand long-term, high-temperature of 175 °C (1000 hrs) or 190 °C (500 hrs).
Arnitel® is a soft and flexible material that brings speed to your 3D printing production - it loads onto the machine and prints twice as fast as other TPCs. It combines this easy and fast printing with high performance characteristics enabled by excellent inter-layer adhesion due to its slower crystallization behavior.
Arnitel® is 100% recyclable, made with 50% bio-based feedstock.
Like all DSM additive manufacturing materials, Arnitel® is supported by an experienced team of additive manufacturing application experts dedicated to helping you get the very most from your material.
Giving new hope with revolutionary 3D printed prosthetics
When Michael Fine, lost his arm in a terrible car accident, things seemed very bleak. It looked even worse when he received his first prosthetic arm , it was expensive, heavy and basically unusable. It was his own son's ingenuity and passion for engineering,together with support from Somos®, that brought a surprising and heartwarming change.
Choosing the right material is critical to the success of your 3D print. Ultimaker's open filament system lets you print with any 2.85 mm filament, and print profiles from the Ultimaker Marketplace streamline print preparation and maximize your print success rate.
