Capricorn Premium PTFE Bowden Tubing TL Series For 1.75mm (1m) In stock
Capricorn Premium PTFE Bowden Tubing TL Series for (1.75mm)
The Capricorn Bowden TL series tubing is a premium tubing made from pure Japanese Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) resins. This tubing defines consistency and you can take advantage of its perfect roundness and a constant diameter through its length.
Great for Printing Uneven Filament
Enhanced filament types such as wood, and metal-flaked materials are generally uneven in diameter. This is due to the external material added to the polymer or filament. The TL tubing has an inner diameter of 2.0mm which takes into account the unevenness of these types of filament.
Truly Flexible and Resistant to Chemicals
The Capricorn Premium Bowden TL tubing integrates the nature of PTFE into its build. This is why the TL series tubing is flexible and does not wear out even when excessively used. The tubing is also resistant to chemicals and would work fine with the different filament types you intend to 3D print.
Helps Resolve Extrusion Problems
The Capricorn Bowden tubing TL delivers a low coefficient of friction. This means that your filament easily moves through the tubing without loosing the force needed for extruding filament. Its diameter size also plays a role in this.
Tubing from the TL series also reduces the bending effects of pressure on the filament during extrusions. The pressure produced by the extrusion system sometimes bends your filament before it comes out of the hot end. But Capricorn Bowden tubing is machined to have a tight internal diameter which drastically reduces the filament’s bending during extrusions. TL series Bowden tubing are also translucent and this allows you view what exactly is going on inside the tube.
