More information about the mosquito repellent TPU Filafly filament
Ideal for creating all kinds of 3D items that will act as a repellent for flying insects.
Perfect for printing bracelets, necklaces, keyrings, watch straps, coasters, hiking accessories, and many more.
Gives off an intense citronella scent and will maintain its mosquito-repellent properties for up to 2 years if the item is kept indoors.
Its semi-rigid structure makes it easier to extrude and print flexible objects that are pleasant to the touch.
Similar to PLA filaments in extrusion temperatures, but with a higher compressive and tensile strength.
Suitable for 3D printers with direct or Bowden extrusion systems.
100% recyclable material,
non-toxic, with food-grade certification. You may use it for pet or children's toys that may come into contact with the mouth. Delivered in a cardboard box, vacuum packed and wound on clear plastic spools to preserve its fragrance.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
TPU is a material prone to absorbing moisture. When this happens, the filament can make bubbles or creaks when printing.
To remove moisture, you can use any of the following strategies:
Leave the filament in a closed room with a dehumidifier for
24 hours Place the filament in an oven for
2 hours at 60 °C
Hot bed temperature
3.5 - 6.5 mm
0.9 - 1.2 mm
(*) Guide values. We recommend experimenting with your 3D printer to find the appropriate parameters.

STORAGE & PRESERVATION
Filaments tend to absorb moisture from the environment, leading to problems during printing or finishing touches. For this reason, it is important to keep the relative humidity value between
10-15% Moisture may cause the filament to degrade, clogging the extruder and varying its physical and mechanical properties.
To keep the filament in good condition and preserve its aroma for as long as possible, it needs to be stored and dried correctly.
The filament must be stored in airtight containers, preferably vacuum packed. You can use zip bags with silica gel beads, vacuum-sealed bags or food containers with a vacuum seal.
There are many techniques to remove moisture, including:
Drying the filament in a home oven or a food dehydrator at low temperatures for long periods.
Using a filament dryer.
The lifespan of a filament can vary according to different factors, so it is important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for drying and storage parameters.
