BuildTak Bond

Need help getting Polypropylene (PP), Polyamide (PA), and Polycarbonate (PC) prints to stick? Our new solution can do the trick, and best of all, it works with your existing Original BuildTak or BuildTak PEI surfaces!!

Meet BuildTak Bond! Just apply directly to your BuildTak surface of choice and heat the bed to 35-40C for 5 min to dry. Then print away.

Our BuildTak Bond is water soluble, so when you want to go back to another filament, just use warm water and a paper towel to remove the adhesive.

Description

Not all filaments are created equal and that includes Polypropylene (PP), Polyamide (PA), and Polycarbonate (PC). In fact, Polypropylene (PP) can be one of the more difficult filaments to print with consistently…until now!

Meet BuildTak Bond! it is now possible to print Polypropylene (PP), Polyamide (PA), and Polycarbonate (PC) consistently on the BuildTak Original Surface and the BuildTak PEI Surface.

As you would printing with any filament, first you want to adjust the nozzle height so the first layer is perfect. You will ideally want to reach the ‘sweet spot.’ Printing Polypropylene (PP), Polyamide (PA), and Polycarbonate (PC) on BuildTak surfaces with BuildTak Bond does not require you to heat the bed at all.

Apply a thin layer of ‘BuildTak Bond’ on the BuildTak Surface (as you would a gluestick) and print directly on the area you plan on printing on. Depending on how much you apply, you should be able to get multiple prints (our tests frequently granted us at least 2-3 uses) on a single layer of BuildTak Bond.
