Specifications

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.

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 layers 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.
