Introducing the granddaddy of flexible filaments. This new material from taulman3D is similar in function to NinjaFlex or other special TPE filaments, but has some really wonderfully unique qualities, and is more affordable. Most impressive is this PCTPE Co-polymer's ease of printing on virtually any 3D printer capable of printing regular ABS. Taulman3D has created this filament using a special process that stretches the material before being spooled for use. This strengthens and increases rigidity of the natural filament, whereas other flexible materials for 3d printing tend to be too stretchy before entering the extruder, causing it to get stuck or feed improperly. You won't have these problems with taulman3D's PCTPE Nylon and TPE Co-Polymer.
The material would be perfect for wearables and creating 3d printed clothing, but would also work well for promotional wristbands, insoles, cellphone cases, wallets, bookmarks, anything bendy and awesome really! One great aspect of this filament is that it can be dyed to fit your color needs. It's like a stretchy blank canvas, waiting for you to print. Taulman PCTPE is a plasticized Copolyamide TPE that is flexible, yet durable and strong. This nylon-based filament has excellent bonding qualities and prints with a white hue.
Taulman PCTPE is an extremely flexible and strong filament. It is a TPE and nylon-based material - this unique combination allows the material to be highly bendable, durable, and great with bonding. Unlike other nylon filament, PCTPE has a low printing temperature, which makes it capable of printing on nearly all desktop 3D printers at settings similar to regular ABS!
