Capricorn Premium PTFE Bowden Tubing XS Series For 2.85mm In stock
Capricorn Premium PTFE Bowden Tubing XS Series for (2.85mm)
The Capricorn Premium Bowden tubing is built from the synthetic polymer Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). It takes the non-stick quality of PTFE and other qualities that make the Capricorn Premium XS Series tubing a safe bet.
Great Flexibility and Highly Chemical Resistant
This 2.85mm Bowden tubing delivers high-performance and retains the flexibility of PTFE and this reduces wear and tear. The Bowden tubing is also resistant to chemicals and would not react negatively with any type of filament. Its very high melting point and low coefficient of friction enhances print speed. The 2.85 mm tubing is designed to work with 2.85mm filament sizes.
Helps Resolve Extrusion Problems
The Capricorn Bowden tubing XS series truly delivers a low coefficient of friction. This means that your filament easily moves through the tubing without losing the force needed for extruding filament.
Tubing from the XS 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.
