This high-performance Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) was the first of its kind on the market for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) applications. It is a highly flexible material for applications that need to resist UV or chemicals or - in case of the HT version - withstand long-term, high-temperature of 175 °C (1000 hrs) or 190 °C (500 hrs).  

Arnitel® is a soft and flexible material that brings speed to your 3D printing production – it loads onto the machine and prints twice as fast as other TPCs. It combines this easy and fast printing with high performance characteristics enabled by excellent inter-layer adhesion due to its slower crystallization behavior. 

Arnitel® is 100% recyclable, made with 50% bio-based feedstock. 

Like all DSM additive manufacturing materials, Arnitel® is supported by an experienced team of additive manufacturing application experts dedicated to helping you get the very most from your material.
