TPU with MJF 3D printer

Hi everyone, I plan to print some parts with an MJF printer and I want my parts to be flexible. So I am considering TPU. Do you have more data about this material? What is the hardness of TPU? Is it water-resistant?

Dear 3D Geek,

in MJF you can print flexible parts in TPU. We use 2 different ones here: Esthane TPU and BASF Ultrasint. Esthane has shore 95 and Ultrasint shore 88. If you prefer one of them, please add this to the comments, if you order. To have it water resistant, you need to add a post processing, which would be vapour smoothing. It works best with Ultrasint.
