Our XS Series of Professional Grade Bowden Tubing is made from the highest quality PTFE. Our secret blend of high lubricity additives turns it a deep blue color.
In 2016 we developed the XS formula of high lubricity additives combined with smaller inner diameter, 1.9mm ± 0.05mm, in order to print flexible filaments with Bowden driven printers. Beta testers quickly discovered that it allowed them to lower retraction as well, which has proven to be an even bigger selling point.
High Lubricity Additives make our XS Series tubing the lowest friction Bowden tubing on the market. Less friction means more responsiveness, less retraction, more accurate prints, less slippage, wear, and tear on the extruder, and less clogging when printing chunky filaments such as some woodfills or ironfills.
Lower retraction means time saved every time the extruder retracts. Over the course of a print, a few milliseconds here and a few there add up to a lot of time saved.
1.9mm ± 0.05mm Inner Diameter Reduces the "wiggle room," or buckling, inside the tube, allowing you to print flexible filaments even on the longest Bowden systems. Most of our printer farm printers are RostockMaxV3s and Tevo Little Monsters.
High Temperature Resistance due to using only the highest quality PTFE. Our XS tubing will operate at even higher temperatures than our TL. See our Safety page for more details about high temperature printing.
Our TL Series High Performance Bowden Tubing stands apart from the pack with its light blue color, and brilliant translucency.
Pure virgin PTFE
is extremely low friction, and has a very high temperature resistance.
Your printer will look as good as it performs.
You are going to love the way your printer looks. Throw that plain white tube in the trash.
2.0mm ± 0.05mm Inner Diameter
ensures you can print chunky or out of spec filaments with ease. We recommend TL series for printing extremely chunky filaments such as Filamentum Timberfill.
Because of its translucence, you can see the filament inside, and diagnose any issues that way.
