Brand new release from Taulman 3D. Be one of the first to print with this incredible new material. A unique Super durable material with excellent flexibility and thermal features.
From Taulman 3D:
"Recognizing a growing need for 3D printing materials with higher durability as well as unique flexibility, taulman3D and DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers (DuPont) worked together to manufacture and release a unique new flexible material to the 3D printing community called T-lyne that uses DuPont™ Surlyn® ionomer. T-lyne is a unique, crystal clear polyethylene copolymer developed specifically for high durability, flexibility, unique viscosity and a wide temperature range. Glass-like aesthetics can easily be obtained at high layer sizes using low speed and low temperatures in the range of 190 C to 210 C. Utility style parts are easily printed faster at standard layer sizes using higher temperatures up to 245 C, depending on nozzle size.
Most notably, DuPont™ Surlyn® in T-lyne meets FDA 21CFR 177.1330(a) and can potentially be used in prosthetics where the most unique feature is the ability to immerse a part into hot water, make some minor adjustments, then cool the part and the part will maintain the adjustments as if it were printed in final form. For years, clinics have used polyethylene braces, temporary casts and corrective positioning components to more closely match the end user’s exact needs. The clarity of T-lyne allows one to see into or through a part with as many as 5-8 perimeters and determine where adjustments may be needed. This same clarity is used for non-destructive evaluation of any printed utility part as internal adhesion is paramount. Also, T-lyne has a surface that is not slippery, making hand tools made from T-lyne unlikely to slip out of one’s hand."
Recommended Printing Settings
Print temp - 185C to 220C - Smaller nozzles than .5mm can use a higher temp up to 235C
Nozzle - Larger = Better or easier to print.
Print Speed = 25mm/s Direct Drive and 18mm/s Bowden - varies from unit to unit.
NOTE: When T-Lyne is too hot, it will have lots of fine bubbles and a rough texture.
Print Bed - T-Lyne prints on most beds cold and heated beds to 40C
STORAGE: Every order comes with one large resealable bag with slider + an extra desiccant included. It is important to store your filaments in a dry area to avoid moisture absorption when not in use. The bag and desiccant ensure your filaments stay dry and free of dust & dirt to make sure your next project prints without a hitch.
