APS Elastomers Offers TPU for 3-D Printing

APS Elastomers offers thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) specifically suited for 3-D Printers. The latest technology in 3-D printing allows pellets to be placed directly into the printer; replacing costlier filament spools. APS Elastomers’ Zythane® TPUs offer durability, toughness, chemical resistance, flexibility and processing ease - making it the ideal material for 3-D printing for a wide range of applications.

Innovations in 3-D printing allow designers to create prototypes and molds; affording greater freedom in design and fabrication. 3-D printing is a revolutionary, cost-effective alternative for molders who produce one-of-a-kind parts or low production runs. “This is an exciting time for smaller manufacturers and molders”, says Stephane Morin, Principal at APS Elastomers. “While we are capable of delivering truckload quantities, our business model has been to support small to medium-sized customers by distributing thermoplastic elastomers with no minimum order quantity– no other producer of TPEs offer low volume orders with the high level of service we provide.”

APS Elastomers is committed to innovation in all areas of the elastomer business by providing knowledge of all TPEs.  Along with the highest level of service and support, APS Elastomers helps select the right polymer and develop new and better processing techniques; allowing OEMs and processors to manufacturer their products successfully and efficiently. APS Elastomers also provides expedited shipment and full laboratory services.
