1lb of 1.75mm Taulman red t-glase Co-Polymer specifically engineered for 3D Printing.
T-glase (short for "tough glass") is a high strength material which was designed for users that print mostly with PLA or lower temperature 3D Printers.
T-glase is composed of the strongest of the PETT polymer combinations available. Most of us have seen a similar polymer in the form of clear high strength water transport containers.
Check out the t-glase vase that we printed out on our Rostock Max V2. As you can see, the object is very glass like and allows a great deal of light to pass through.
Strength - First, as it’s part of the taulman3D industrial line, it is strong and durable. T-glase is very strong, yet different from Taulman nylons as it’s stiff, like PLA and ABS.
Temperature - Optimum temperature is about 212c to 224C, but will print down to 207C and up to about 235C.
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.
Environmental - While t-glase is not biodegradable like PLA, it is a material that’s considered 100% reclaimable. Thus the new “struders” that convert failed prints back to usable line work perfectly with t-glase. If you have a “struder”, you can actually mix in 12% of the total weight in discarded clear water bottles.
Clarity – like 645 nylon, 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.
Bridging - Those of us that have printed with acrylics and polycarbonates are always envious of their bridging capabilities due to glass temperature. And the new t-glase is very impressive at bridging.
Fumes - Unlike some lines, there are no odors or fumes when 3D Printing with t-glase.
