Heat resistance 130C | Steam Sterilizable | Great layer-to-layer adhesion | Tough prints
nGen_FLEX is engineered as a semi-flexible material which allows most users to print at regular print speeds, cutting down build times compared to other very flexible filaments. Also bowden style 3D printers, 1.75mm and 2.85mm, will be able to push this filament through without much trouble.

nGen_FLEX is temperature resistant to about 130C. That means 3D printed objects can be steam sterilized at 121C which is a great asset for medical / laboratory environments.
Flexible and tough
Printed in single perimeters and without infill or very little, objects will feel quite flexible. Printed with multiple perimeters and more infill objects will be very firm and tough. The material is rated at a Shore A hardness level of 95.

“The layeradhesion is ridiculous, it results in such tough parts even when printed at a single perimeter, it’s just amazing.”
