Benefit to Your Prints

Getting adequate and consistent bed adhesion is a problem for many 3D printing enthusiasts. There are tricks like using a glue stick or hairspray, but these leave residue on your prints and are not always consistent. The BuildTak FlexPlate System aims to eliminate your bed adhesion struggles without the use of glues or any external adhesive. The BuildTak original sheet has a textured surface that gives your prints more surface area to stick too and improves bed adhesion. This sheet works great with PLA, ABS, HIPS, PET+, Brick, Wood & Flexible (TPE) filaments. If you do a lot of work with PETG then the BuildTak PEI sheet is for you. PEI is microporous which means it has many microscopic holes that act almost like suction cups. This allows plastics like PETG to stick to it incredibly well. The BuildTak PEI sheet will also work great with PLA, ABS, and TPU. Both of the BuildTak sheets are relatively maintenance free, and neither require any sort of surface prep. BuildTak also offers a Nylon+ which, as the name implies, is perfect for printing with Nylon materials. This system also simplifies the print removal process. Simply lift off the steel sheet from the magnetic bed and bend it, your print should pop right off.

Is this system right for you?

If you have struggled with bed adhesion in the past or are looking to upgrade your build plate, the BuildTak FlexPlate System is a great choice. Installation is very simple and should only take a few minutes and the bed adhesion improvement will be instantly noticeable.
