You asked for it, we listened!
BuildTak Polyetherimide (PEI) Surfaces are made from premium Ultem 1000 PEI and are equipped with our no-cleanup BuildTak Surface adhesive.
As a comparable alternative to the BuildTak Standard Surfaces, BuildTak PEI Surfaces exhibit slightly different adhesion and release properties which vary depending on the material being printed. In general, BuildTak PEI Surfaces offer easier release of finished prints meanwhile BuildTak Standard Surfaces offer a stronger hold during printing.
For example, Polycarbonate filaments require BuildTak Standard Surfaces extra-strong hold to finish prints successfully, while BuildTak PEI Surfaces should be used for PETG filaments in order to provide an easier release.
When paired with our BuildTak FlexPlate System and multiple BuildTak FlexPlates it is possible to take advantage of the benefits of each surface by easily switching between the BuildTak Standard Surface and BuildTak PEI Surface depending on the material being printed.
