Take what’s Best
from Both.

Combining the features of rubber and plastic resulted in creating Z-SEMIFLEX,
a TPU-98A based material offering multiple applications for professional users
requiring both elasticity and stiffness of the components.

Say No More to Wear and Tear.
High interlayer adhesion is the factor that translates to the improved durability of the material. The strong bond between layers makes Z-SEMIFLEX resist even when exposed to tearing and abrasion, which makes it the best choice for functional prototypes tested in adverse environments.

Aorta. Thanks to the shape-memory of the Z-SEMIFLEX the model can resemble the physical properties of the real aorta.

Stay in Shape.
Z-SEMIFLEX belongs to the group of shape-memory thermoplastics that after pressing can easily return to their initial shape. Thanks to the both stiffness and elasticity offered by the material the 3D printed models can undergo various tests without the risk of destroying their form.

Universal joint rubber boot. The temperature resistance of Z-SEMIFLEX allows the model to be used as a functional automotive prototype.

Printed valve without support

applications:

  • end-use parts with medium elasticity
