T-glase pronounced as T-glass, it is a high-quality polyethylene terephthalate polymer, one of the finest Taulman 3D printing materials. It has an optimum temperature of 235-240C, but it can withstand temperatures up to 255C.

It performs impressively at bridging and has very low shrinkage, making printing flat surfaces a breeze. It is FDA approved and can be used for manufacturing products such as flasks, bottles, cups and other utensils which come in direct contact with food and water.

T-glase clarity supports the industry’s requirements, and although it is not “biodegradable” like PLA, it certainly is 100% reclaimable. Which means that the new struders work perfectly well with t-glase, allowing you to mix in 12% of the total weight.

It comes in a nice range of colors like clear, aqua, green, white, red and black. And in contrast to other filaments, t-glase does not produce any fumes while printing.
