What is CPE 3D printing?

Ultimaker CPE (co-polyester) material is an ideal choice for 3D printing functional prototypes and mechanical parts. This filament is formulated for chemical resistance, toughness, and reliable dimensional stability.

What is CPE 3D printing filament?

Ultimaker CPE (co-polyester) material is an ideal choice for 3D printing functional prototypes and mechanical parts. This filament is formulated for chemical resistance, toughness, and reliable dimensional stability.

What is SBS filament?

SBS stands for styrene-butadiene-styrene but what does that mean to you, the 3D creator? This unique filament blends hard styrene and rubber which results in 3D prints that are strong but retain some flexibility.

Can PETG be made from PET?

PETG is an adaptation of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) where the ‘G’ stands for glycol, which is added at a molecular level to offer different chemical properties.

How long can you leave PETG out?

PETG filament can last a long time if it is stored in a cool place, but if the filament is exposed to heat, it will become brittle and crack, especially when simultaneously exposed to moisture. Most PETG filaments can be stored for 2 years or more before it becomes brittle and cracks.

What material is PETG?

PETG or Polyethylene terephthalate glycol is a thermoplastic polyester commonly used in manufacturing. The PET component is what is commonly found in plastic beverage bottles and food products.

Is PETG UV stable?

PETg filament exhibits high UV resistance – making it suited to applications for the outdoors and / or require exposure to direct sunlight.

Is CPE food safe?

For example, Ultimaker CPE filament is food safe approved and the emissions of volatile compounds while printing are not harmful – as opposed to ABS that can release styrene.
