Creamelt TPU-R filament
- story by MaterialDistrict
CREAMELT TPU-R is an elastic filament for 3D printers that consists of 100% recycled ski boots. For the recycling, people with disabilities of the ARGO workshop in Davos collect old ski boots and disassemble them. After a chemical analysis and colour sorting, the plastic is shredded, remelted and extruded into new filaments. CREAMELT TPU-R offers the possibility of printing flexible objects made of recycled material, making it a sustainable alternative to virgin material.
