Technical Specifications of NinjaFlex 3d Printing Filament

 Bowden Extruder Capability - Bowden extruders are not ideal for printing flexible filaments such as NinjaFlex due to the excessive distance between the stepper motor and the extruder head; however, some users have generated successful prints using reduced speeds

 Bridging (Crossing Open Spans) - NinjaFlex behaves similarly to ABS in this regard and may be substituted in prints designed for ABS

 Coating the Build Plate - NinjaFlex bonds well to most surfaces (including aluminum and glass, blue painters tape, etc.), so coating the build platform is not necessary. Kapton tape can be used with NinjaFlex, but the adhesion of the printed part to the tape may be stronger than the adhesive holding the tape to the build platform.

 Feeding - In order for flexible filaments such as NinjaFlex to feed properly, a spring-loaded feed mechanism with a roller bearing is the best option. Also, the extruder must support the filament between the exit of the drive gear and the entrance to the melt chamber.

Max. Temperature for Printed Parts - The recommended maximum temperature for NinjaFlex printed parts is 66°C (150°F)

Min. Temperature for Printed Parts - The recommended minimum temperature for NinjaFlex printed parts is -30°C (-22°F). Below this temperature, printed parts will become increasingly brittle and may shatter.

 Plastic Guide Tubes - While the low coefficient of friction surface of NinjaFlex has been formulated to reduce surface tack and allow the filament to feed more easily, the use of PTFE guide tubes may be beneficial to further reduce pull at the extruder.

 Storage - Store in original containers at ambient environmental conditions. Segregate from foods and animal feeds.

 Ventilation - NinjaFlex should be used in a well-ventilated area according to recommended operating conditions. TPE products are capable of releasing small amounts of fumes at high temperatures. While these fumes are generally considered tolerable and less odorous than ABS, care should be taken to minimize exposure, particularly among sensitive persons.
