The leading manufacturer BuildTak Builder 3D printing surface BuilldTak has developed a new surface with one of the most advanced materials currently, the Ultem PEI 1000. The BuildTak PEI (Polyetherimide) is equipped with the powerful BuildTak Original adhesive to ensure the union with any type of printing base, including the BuildTak FlexPlate system.
The BuildTak PEI is the perfect complement to the Original BuildTak p3D printing surface so that every user of a 3D printer is ready to print any type of material. The Original BuildTak presents a fantastic adhesion performance with materials that are not conventional and prone to warping like the PC, being able to increase its adhesion even more with a fixative product (DimaFix, glue stick, SmartStick, etc). Its adhesion can become excessive for common materials (PLA, ABS or PETG), especially if the initial layer is very close to the printing surface. The BuildTak PEI has a more than sufficient adhesion during 3D printing and easier release than the Original BuildTak, being able to print large pieces in materials such as PLA or PETG in 3D printers with cold base or parts in materials that need hot base (ABS or ASA) and remove them from the surface very quickly and easily. When older, the use of this sheet avoids the drawbacks of using spray fixers, dirt, washing or possible breakage of the 3D printing surface when removing a piece, etc.
3D printing surfaces BuildTak PEI are much easier to install than Kapton Tape as they rarely get air bubbles. It also protects the motherboard from the 3D printer. The BuildTak PEI are much more rigid than the adhesive tapes as the Blue Tape or Kapton Tape so are much easier to install and much less susceptible to the appearance of air bubbles beneath the surface.
BuildTak are heat resistant and can be reused many times in a row and multiple types of materials without having to be changing every time you print such as Kapton Tape or 3DLac. When a decrease in the adhesion power is detected, it should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and a peeling cloth or a PEC*PAD wipe thus increasing the usefulness of the BuildTak PEI.
3D printing surfaces BuildTak are made of high quality raw material and are designed to withstand the high temperatures of the base of typical 3D printing FFF / FDM printing (125ºC).
In summary, the advantages of the BuildTak PEI compared to the Original BuildTak is its better behavior with materials of daily use in 3D printing (PLA, ABS or PETG) thanks to having sufficient adherence during the realization of the piece, including with the cold base, and the easy release of the piece once 3D printing is finished.
