Product Description
Eastman Amphora™ Flex 3D polymer FL6000, a flexible material uniquely engineered for extrusion-based additive manufacturing processes. Amphora Flex FL6000 is a polymer that can be used with standard 3D printers—eliminating the need to switch to specialized flex extruders. Thanks to exceptional layer-to-layer adhesion and melt strength, it prints at a faster speed than other elastomeric materials, saving you time. Amphora Flex FL6000 is an engineering-grade material that demonstrates superior durability and toughness, enabling designers to quickly create truly functional parts that can withstand the rigors of everyday use. Amphora Flex FL6000 is highly useful for applications that demand both the durability of an engineering-grade polymer and the comfort and utility of a flexible material. With a Shore A hardness level of 95, outstanding chemical resistance, and a temperature resistance that allows steam sterilization, users may find it to be the ideal polymer for additive manufacturing of prosthetics, orthotics, automotive parts, apparel, tooling, or a variety of consumer products.
