Solving Bed Adhesion In Flexible Filaments | Best Tips

Flexible filaments are plastics with rubbery properties like TPE(Thermoplastic elastomers), TPU(Thermoplastic Polyurethane), or TPC(Thermoplastic Copolyester). These are most commonly used for automotive parts, household appliances, or medical devices. The filaments are usually soft and elastic and can thus withstand high loads. These filaments are a great choice for gaskets or bumpers.  At times, there occurs …
