Is it possible to achieve white color on a small SLS 3D printer? This question was asked a hundred times. Somehow clients love white materials, but in selective laser sintering technology, it was usually connected with big, industrial machines. Out of range for many SMEs. Now, Sinterit decided to change it and provide the first TPU material that is as close to the white color as it is possible, preserving the material’s properties at the same time.

Flexa Bright allows printing almost white, flexible objects with two levels of hardness, depending on your choice. It is a functional rubber used in applications when nice looking color is essential.

The white color has been an industry standard since the beginning of selective laser technology invention. Especially the professionals, with years of experience in 3D printing on industrial machines, were used to the white powder, so it has been a little bit harder for them to accept gray or black printouts. On the other hand, users of small SLS 3D printers are used to dark prints. With Flexa Bright, Sinterit is giving the solution which will please all.

Flexa Bright properties

As a rubber-like material, Flexa Bright has a good elongation at break of about 317[%], and it has the ultimate tensile strength of 10[MPa], according to PN-ISO 37:2007. With the average hardness value of 79 in Shore type A scale by PN-EN ISO 868:2005, we can classify it as a medium hard material. The water absorption of Flexa Bright is about 3%, according to PN-EN ISO 62:2008.

What can you do with Flexa Bright?

It is suitable for prototyping fabric, clothes or creating items needed in medicine, especially in pre-surgery and training printouts in the medical industry, as well as in architecture or luxury industry. It is perfect for flexible prototypes, clothing parts, mock-ups, and models.

The official premiere of Flexa Bright will take place during Formnext 2018, the biggest show for the additive manufacturing industry.

Both 3D printers, Sinterit Lisa and Lisa Pro can print with Flexa Bright. Here is the comparison of them made by Aniwaa.
