RS PRO 3D Printer Filament TPC Flex

Printing with flexible filaments is yet another way to expand your 3D printer capabilities. Unlike most common materials such as PLA or PETG, this TPC Flex 45 filament from our own RS PRO brand offers flexibility, great adhesion between the layers and often also elasticity.


  • Good resistance to chemicals and extreme temperatures make it unique filament

  • TPC Flex 45 is BIO performance Thermoplastic Co-Polyester has a high carbon content of renewable materials resulting in les environmental impact

  • TPC Flex 45 has excellent UV resistance

  • Printed products can withstand a lot of mechanical stress without breaking

  • Unique balance of flexibility, sustained high temperature and chemical resistance

  • Very low odour while printing

  • Retains flexibility even at low temperatures

  • Low moisture absorption

Recommended Print Conditions

  • Extruder temperature: 230 – 255 °C

  • Bed temperature: 23 – 70 °C

  • Bed prep: Hairspray or Glue stick on clean glass

  • Print Speed: Flexible 88A prints slower, about 20 mm/s to start, then increase as you become more familiar with the material

  • Experience Level: Moderate to Advanced. Printing with elastomers is a bit more complicated than hard plastics and generally requires more experience and an extruder purposefully built or modified to handle flexible filaments

  • TPC FLEX 45 can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers

Storage advice

Once you've purchased your filament it's important to store it correctly to maintain its quality. Over time the plastic will absorb moisture from the air, creating small water bubbles in the filament. These bubbles when heated in the extruder nozzle will quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommend.
