Taulman t-glase PETT


This new PET based filament is a very promising material from leading manufacturer Taulman3D. Being a PET type filament it is easy to print, extremely transparent and very strong. What sets T-Glase apart from other PET materials is that it has been modified to be much less brittle and as such makes for tougher prints that can flex. The coloured T-Glase materials are truly some of the most visually attractive filaments available, especially when printed with thin walls which make the most of the incredible transparency of T-Glase.

This filament is known for a visually appealing finish. Available in multiple eye-catching colors, you'll be surprised at how well it prints while maintaining a high degree of translucence. Models printed in t-glase have a great surface finish, can reflect light well, and depending on the part geometry, even shimmer and gleam. One of the interesting properties of this new filament is it's ability to act as a light pipe to transmit light.

Temperature -  Optimum temperature is about 235c to 240C, but will print down to 230C and up to about 248C. 
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.

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.  These documents will be posted below when available.

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.  Please keep in mind, that the polymer used in most water bottles, has a slightly higher melt temp and that adding them to the mix, may increase print temp a few degrees.

Clarity – t-glase is considered colorless per industrial classifications.  t-glase is considered "water clear" as it will not degrade to a color in multiple layters 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.

Bridging -  Those of us that have printed with acrylics and poly carbonates 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.
