Take your 3D printing to the next level with LayerLock Garolite Build Surface! Garolite takes the guesswork out of printing with nylon-based filaments such as NylonX and NylonG so your engineering grade prints come out warp-free. Also compatible with common filaments like PLA, PETG, and TPU, this thin linen-based phenolic sheet with an adhesive backing provides strong adhesion between a print object and its build surface. Invest in this extremely durable build surface once and receive a reliable build surface that will last a lifetime.
Garolite sheets are the ideal choice when printing with nylon-based 3D printing material. It is also compatible with most common 3D printing materials. Nylon does not stick to most common bed surfaces. LayerLock Garolite Build Surface adheres strongly and allows for a high success rate when printing with Nylon, NylonX, and NylonG prints. Plan on printing with nylon filaments? This build surface is for you.

Successfully printing NylonX has never been easier than with LayerLock Garolite Build Surface.
Don't let its thin 0.038" thickness fool you. With proper care, LayerLock Garolite Build Surface will last for thousands of prints. It is an easy one-time investment for a lifetime of successful 3D prints. Parts not sticking as well anymore? See some wear or damage? Lightly sand the top surface with 220g sandpaper (included) and LayerLock Garolite Build Surface will adhere print objects to its build surface just as strongly, if not stronger, than it did before. These thin, durable garolite sheets with an adhesive backing will last a lifetime, making it an ideal build surface that hobbyists and professionals can rely on.
We trust garolite so much, we offer it on many of our Pulse models.
Expand your roster of reliable build surfaces with a LayerLock Garolite Build Surface! PEI and glass are great build surfaces, but your filament choices are limited. Replacing bed sheets can also get expensive. Not only does garolite allow you to print nylon filaments, but it will also last virtually forever. This thin linen-based, phenolic material with an adhesive backing provides effective bed adhesion, creating a strong bond between the printed object and the build surface. Simply remove the adhesive liner on the back of the thin garolite sheet and stick it onto an appropriate, solid build plate that generates or transfers heat. Now your build surface is ready to provide strong bed adhesion! Garolite is our only choice when printing with NylonX and NylonG, but it's also versatile and adheres well to many standard filaments.
Add garolite to your roster of reliable, durable build surfaces that successfully prints nylon filaments and more.
Installation is simple and easy for any printer setup. Clean your build plate with isopropyl alcohol. Then remove the adhesive liner on the back of the garolite sheet and stick it onto whatever build plate is installed on your specific printer. Whether it's a heated bed, a flexplate system or a sheet of glass, this LayerLock Garolite Build Surface is compatible. Once stuck to the build plate, re-level your surface based on your specific printer/setup with the newly installed LayerLock Garolite Build Surface and ensure the nozzle height is properly set. Thanks to the garolite sheet's thin thickness, adjustments to your z-height will be minor. That's it! You're ready to print.

May require PVA glue
Nylon Filament requires the 3D printer to have an all-metal hotend.
Abrasive materials require the 3D printer to have a High Performance Nozzle such as a Hardened Steel Nozzle or Ruby Nozzle.
Compatible with any RepRap 3D printer that can fit an 8" x 8" size sheet on its heated bed.
Wipe the print surface before and after a print with isopropyl alcohol to maintain a clean surface. Clean off PVA glue with warm water. If the print surface becomes damaged, it is recommended that users lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper and a sanding block. It is best to sand the entire plate evenly to avoid creating low spots. Avoid inhaling dust particles from sanding by wearing a respirator mask.
