    Newbie here. Questions about TPU filament for Auto Applications

    I want to make Gaskets, but not for under the Hood. I have an old 1960's convertible and want to make Gaskets that interface with the exterior paint surface. So I'm taking about Antenna Gaskets, Door lock Gaskets and more. Will TPU hold up to UV? Will it discolor or otherwise damage the paint on the car? Any help or alternate material suggestion appreciated. Specific Brands filament suggestions would be helpful.

    Thank you

    should be absolutely fine.

    polyurethane is uv and chemical resistant to a pretty impressive degree.
    As long as oyu print the gaskets solid, should be ideal :-)
