The Industrial Grade Filament
Designed and manufactured by one of the leading companies in the development of TPU 3D printing filaments. NinjaTek™ the 3D printing business of Fenner Drives located in the USA, have engineered a filament that has an impact strength 86% greater than ABS, with high abrasion resistance.
Armadillo filament is a high performing rigid material, providing 90% higher abrasion resistance than nylon materials. Its toughness ratings are superior to commonly used materials, 86 times greater than that of ABS. It is an excellent material to use for bridging, with virtually no warping issues.
When you need a rigid product that can withstand wear and tear, the Armadillo resistance to fracturing makes it a perfect replacement.
Suggested Applications: braces, fasteners, gears and protective covers.
