It is a unique new flexible polyethylene copolymer which is clear in color. It can withstand different temperature ranges, and you can achieve glass-like aesthetics while printing between 180-242C. The clarity of T-lyne allows the user to make adjustments to the printed parts as it allows one to see 5-8 perimeters through the parts. For this reason, it has been used in clinics for making polyethylene braces and temporary casts.
T-lyne is made up of DuPont™ Surlyn® ionomer which meets the FDA requirement to be used in manufacturing prosthetics. The Surlyn ionomers are used to coat golf balls and bowling pins to protect them from extreme abuse. T-lyne prints easily on both cold and warm (40C) surfaces including glass, Gecko Tek, PEI, acrylic, Build Tak and borosilicate glass.
It is available in two different diameters of 1.75mm and 2.85mm, and it is solvent in Tetrahydrofuran. It is also approved by the FDA for direct food contact.
