Taulman filaments have made a name for themselves due to their strength. Taulman nylons are engineering grade filaments capable of producing incredibly strong parts. Taulman also has flexible nylons, and shiny near glazed filaments.
Alloy 910: Alloy 910 is a measurable advancement in 3D Printing materials technology from taulman3D. taulman Alloy 910 is the combined effort of chemical companies, extrusion manufactures and taulman3D to specifically develop a single material to meet as many high performance 3D Printing needs as possible. With a combined tensile strength higher than the strongest co-polyesters, the durability of Nylons, a shrinkage factor that rivals our t-glase, a vast range of chemical resistance and a ~82C working range, you now have one solution easily printable at 250C-255C.
Nylon 680: We are extremely pleased to have the excellent co-operation of our top tier chemical company along with our extrusion manufacturing company. This team has worked together to produce an excellent polymer that not only meets chemical requirements, but enables the use of nylon 680 in most FFM type 3D Printers. Nylon 680 is compatible with Ethylene oxide and Flash Steam post processing.
Nylon 645: Nylon 645 is currently being used by CNC shops around the world to support quick turn prototypes for Pre-Pilot and Pilot runs as well as some limited production runs. Nylon 645 has the highest chemical resistance of all of our Nylons and is highly compatible where Nylon 6,6 is required.
PCTPE: PCTPE stands for “Plasticized Copolyamide TPE” or a chemical co-polymer of highly flexible nylon and TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) . PCTPE has several unique features that allow any user to print a highly flexible part with the added durability of our nylon polymers. This combination of polymers was developed specifically to allow anyone using current FFF 3D Printers to print parts from durable prosthetics to complete cosplay wearable outfits, cell phone enclosures as well as highly flexible utility/industrial parts. The flexibility of PCTPE means that the end parts will have the smooth lustrous texture of nylon, and the added flexibility offered by a rubber like TPE.
Bridge: Bridge Nylon is similar to Nylon 645 with excellent tensile and low friction surface. While similar to Nylon 645, Bridge is chemical resistant to most chemicals except chlorine, bromines and some petrols. Bridge Nylon is fully capable of thread tapping and machine tooling.
guidel!ne: guidel!ne – A medical grade ISO 10993 FDA reg material.
When 3D Printed, guidel!ne has a tensile strength higher than our strongest TECH-G, coming in at 6,850PSI. Elongation is 5.9 and a modulus of 281,469PSI. Heat distortion temp is 70C. Softening temperature is 100C. guidel!ne is a clear PETG based polymer that prints at 250C. guidel!ne is very easy to print needing only a small amount of retraction. A key feature of guidel!ne is that one can easily print small hollow tubes without the issue of heat build-up deforming the tube.
t-glase: t-glase (called TEE-GLASS) is an “optically correct” or water clear polymer that comes in Clear, Red, Green, Blue, White, Black and Aqua. Red, Green, Blue and Aqua are translucent rather than opaque. t-glase is a food and beverage safe polymer and carries the recycle rating of “1”. t-glase is one of the lowest shrinkage of the polyesters. With optical coatings, t-glase can appear as clear as a glass part. t-glase prints at 235-245C. One can easily print light guides or light pipes.
TECH-G: TECH-G was developed to not only be high strength, but also have limited elongation. Engineering firms were using PLA and ABS for initial Form and Fit evaluations. In some cases, the strength of these materials allowed some limited functional use. In the case of PLA, it was the brittle nature of medium or larger parts that severely limited functional testing. With ABS, the limit was always Tensile strength. With TECH-G, we believe we have now given the development and design industry an easy to print material with much higher Tensile when 3D Printed and enough elongation so as to be truly useful in functional testing.
BluPrint: BluPrint is a specialty polymer developed to specifically handle High Heat Deflection requirements. With a Tg of 110C and a print temp of 285C, BluPrint is an easy to print polymer that comes as a clear material (very subtle blue hue) similar to t-glase.
