Taulman PCTPE is Flexible Nylon

Supplied in a 450g filament spool size. Taulman PCTPE (Plasticized Copolyamide TPE Filament) is a new nylon filament that is extremely flexible whilst also being durable and strong. PCTPE has a lower printing temperature than other taulman nylons and easily prints on any FDM/FFF 3D printer at only 225˚C – 230˚C. While extremely flexible the nylon ensures 1.75mm line is no problem for direct drive or bowdens feed systems.

Taulman PCTPE can print on most 3D printers at a temperature of 225C – 230C in comparison to other higher temperature Nylon filament. The filaments extreme flexibility ensures the 1.75mm diameter will be no problem for direct drive or bowdens feed systems. From thin parts that wad up like paper to thicker prints such as shoe soles with just the right flexibility, PCTPE is an easy-to-print material meeting a long list of requirements from users.

Tough and Easy

Product: Taulman PCTPE Nylon filament 450g

This is a really easy filament to print. I use 235C nozzle temp, 45C build plate, 50/50 PVA/Water on glass and fan speed zero and get great results every time. It is more flexible than most Nylon but incredibly tough and suitable for production parts.
