Last Wednesday, Graphene 3D Lab Inc. announced a revolutionary new product in the 3D printing space. They are releasing a highly conductive and highly flexible filament for use with existing 3D printers, like those at Voxel Magic.
Developed in New York, the new filament can be used in 3D printed flexible sensors, electromagnetic/radiofrequency shielding, and in flexible, conductive traces and electrodes for use in smart clothing. The new filament is called “Conductive Flexible TPU Filament” and will be available at Graphene 3D Labs’ online store (www.blackmagic3D.com) or directly at through Voxel Magic should your project require it.
Graphene 3D’s Co-CEO, Elena Polyakova said:
“We are thrilled to be releasing such an innovative filament to our ever-evolving product line. The upgrades made to our production facility equipment and extensive research performed by our staff has given us the opportunity to now offer an exciting new product that will feature two of the most highly sought after 3D printing properties: flexibility and conductivity.”
As the 3D printing industry grows, the limits of what can be accomplished are constantly being broken. In the years to come, not only will we be able to print multiple materials at once, but we will be able to print fully-functional electronics. Graphene’s Flexible Conductive TPU Filament is another exciting step to making this dream a reality.
Technical Information: Conductive Flexible TPU has a volume resistivity of <1.25 Ω-cm and a hardness of Shore 90 A. A few of Graphene 3D Lab’s recommended printing parameters include:
- Extruder temperature: 210°C
- Platform temperature: 20-50°C
- Print speed: 2400 mm/min
- Nozzle size: >0.4 mm
