3D Prima 10306 Taulman Print Filament, PETT, T-Glase, 3 mm, Black



Taulman T-Glase PET Co-Polymer Ttaulman3D has released another high strength material. One for those users that print mostly with PLA or lower temperature 3D Printers. This new material is called “t-glase” (tee glass) short for tough glass. The main features of t-glase Strength – Specifications on the strength of t-glase will be posted as soon as the data is returned from the test labs. We have started using a local test lab along with the lab’s at a few universities to accumulate data. The process involves printing several “test bars” These are bars printed at 5″ x .5″ x .25″. The setup for printing these is 1 perimeter and 100% solid layers. Temperature – Optimum temperature is about 212c to 224C, but will print down to 207C and up to about 235C. NOTE: A feature of t-glase was to select a polymer that easily sticks to heated acrylic and glass print tables for the smoothest bottom surface possible. While t-glase meets this requirement, it results in a low glass transition temperature. The effects of a low TG is that parts printed in t-glase, should not be exposed to high temperature use or applications. The measured TG of t-glase is 78C.

  • 450 grams, 1 LB of Taulman T-Glase
  • FDA approved – t-glase is specifically made of FDA approved polymers for direct food contact/containers. This includes cups and other liquid storage parts as well as utensils. We are working with the chemical company to provide you with FDA related documentation so you may sell your printed parts that meet FDA requirements.
  • Clarity – t-glase is considered colourless per industrial classifications. t-glase is considered “water clear” as it will not degrade to a colour in multiple layers of applied thickness. t-glase’s clarity supports industry’s requirements for non-destructive evaluation of 3D Printed parts.
  • Shrinkage – Very low shrinkage makes printing large flat surfaces a breeze. And it easily prints to acrylic, glass, Kapton and other platforms.
  • It should be noted, that t-glase is a high strength PET polymer and prints with standard setting used for PLA but with a print temp of about 235C. All of the cooling profiles and techniques used for PLA apply to tglase. Large industrial users like AOSmith and others as well as hundreds of machine shops use t-glase for it’s non delaminating feature when printing large parts. However to gain an increase in transparently of the final part for aesthetics, one needs to increase layer size and in doing so would need to slow the printer down based on the increased material flow.
