Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Recreus introduced Reciflex, a new flexible TPU filament that is 100% recycled. This flexible TPU filament is made from 100% recycled materials consisting of waste from the footwear industry and from Recreus’ own internal production processes.

Its hardness ranges between 96A and 98A SHORE ‘A’ due to the variations attributable to its origin as a recycled material, almost imperceptible in the printed items. Moreover, it is easy to print and compatible with every printer on the market.

Targeting circular economy dynamics and meeting to the demands of clients, the material is carefully selected and magnetically screened for production in order to prevent metallic residue, thereby guaranteeing that it performs correctly during printing.

Despite being made from recycled materials, Recreus guarantess excellent mechanical properties and good resistance to solvents. Reciflex is only available in black, as the black pigment is added once all the recycled colors have been mixed in order to homogenize the product and obtain a definitive solid, shiny black coloration.

Reciflex is a suitable material for the manufacture of parts with demanding mechanical requirements. It is ideal for producing parts that require resistance to solvents, protective covers for GoPro, mobile phones, protection for drones, wheels for radio-controlled cars and robots. Reciflex is available and for sale in 750 gr. and 3 Kg spools sizes, in both 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm diameter. The company recommends a melt temperature of 220-235°C and printing speed between 20- 60 mm/s with a bed temperature of 50-60ºC.
