Product Code: TAUL-MAT-PCTPE



Description Technical Specs
PCTPE boasts a unique combination of high strength nylon and flexible thermoplastic elastomer ingredients, allowing you to 3D print durable objects with semi-smooth texture that can withstand bending and twisting while exhibiting minimal stretching. Like other Taulman nylons, white PCTPE is glossy white with medium-opacity and can be dyed to achieve custom color profiles. See examples using Rit® brand dye shown in the photo window of this product page.

Print Surface Recommendation: Taulman PCTPE is a nylon filament material, therefore applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) directly to the print surface before starting is strongly recommended.
