Arnitel® ID2045 is a thermoplastic copolyester (TPC) with unique properties such as resistance against high temperatures due to long term thermo-oxidative stability. The material is highly elastic with Shore D of 34 and does not show cracking or loss in gloss under UV exposure. Half of Arnitel® ID2045 material originates from bio-based feedstock.
Ideal for soft, flexible applications, this material prints twice as fast when compared to TPU. It combines easy and fast printing with high performance characteristics enabled by excellent inter-layer adhesion due to its slower crystallization behavior. Arnitel® ID2045 has excellent energy return - 20-30% higher when compared to TPU and EVA.
The natural colored filament passes ISO 10993-10 Irritation/Intracutaneous reactivity testing, ISO 10993-5 Cytotoxicity testing and USP class VI tests for medical implants.
Arno Hermans, founder of 3Dmouthguard, Covestro and Mass Portal collaborate to create 3D printed mouthguards with Arnitel material that is safe for use in the oral cavity.
ProReva, Twikit and Ultimaker collaborate to create a comprehensive digital workflow to produce customized, personalized 3D printed orthotics and prosthetics.
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) collaborated with Covestro to improve the performance and design of the Mono R. Together, the companies built a lighter and less expensive Formula 1-inspired ram-air inlet system, improved the aerodynamic design of its custom-made mirror brackets and created durable steering wheels with custom grips.
BDI Additive, JuggerBot 3D and Covestro utilized 3D printing to transform end-of-arm tooling and make manufacturing customizable, faster and low cost.
