Ultrasint® TPU 88A shows a balanced property profile with good flexibility and allows complete freedom of design, high level of detail and surface quality. This elastic material is an exceptional choice for industrial tubes and pipes, consumer footwear and sports equipment, automotive components and for jigs and fixtures.

Companies trust the Fathom team with low- to- high-volume projects because of our award-winning expertise, quality, and speed. Fathom’s accelerated manufacturing capabilities allow for next day turnaround on SLS parts – running our 3D printing machines 24/7 enables us to meet tight deadlines while maintaining precise specifications.

To further expedite and scale our 3D production capacity, we now offer automated post processing with Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) POSTPRO® 3D machinery. This patented technology achieves an injection molded surface quality for thermoplastic polymer 3D parts. Large batches of parts can be run simultaneously and do not require any additional steps after the 90-120 minute process time.


Application Example // Industrial tubes and pipes

  • Water-tight down to 0.6mm wall thickness

  • High burst pressure, e.g. 7.4 bar at 3mm wall thickness

  • Good resistance to water and various chemicals

  • Readily implemented material model allows for further part optimization via BASF Ultrasim® simulation and design services
