PEI (Polyetherimide) sheets provide a 3D printing build surface that requires no tape, slurry, or adhesive. ABS and PLA both stick extremely well to the surface, which eliminates the need for make stronger rafts used for better adhesion. The printed 3D parts will adhere to the PEI surface on a heated bed, and it’s going to release or pop off when cooling down.
How to Use:
Cut the PEI sheet to size by scoring with a hobby knife. Get rid of the blue protective film from the PEI sheet. Carefully apply the 3M 468MP Transfer Tape and use it to stick the PEI to the print bed. Both a sheet and strips of adhesive are included in each and every package.
Once the PEI sheet is connected, re-level your print bed and you are prepared to go!
It helps to wipe the surface down with isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, or soap in between prints. This will ensure the PEI is clean, and help adhesion. Light sanding with 2400 grit paper will also give the PEI sheet more life.
MADE IN THE USA: Single 1mm thick sheet installs quickly on top of existing flat build platforms (e.g. borosilicate glass) the use of the 3M 468MP adhesive transfer tape.
ABS and PLA filaments (at the side of many other materials) print directly on to PEI surface without the need for additional adhesives, tapes, or slurry.
REMOVE FILM FROM BOTH SIDES BEFORE USING: Blue protective film guards against scratches all the way through shipping and handling.
Reuse for more than one prints, just wipe down with isopropyl alcohol between prints for best results
