Our pre-sized build plate tape is cut from gaffer’s tape. With higher heat resistance and a better print adhesion, this 3D printer build plate tape is certainly better than old blue painters tape.
Often used in theater, audio, and video studios, gaffer tape is made to withstand the intense heat of hot studio lighting. With a temperature range of 50°- 200° F, the high heat resistance makes it perfect for use in 3D printing.
It is cotton cloth based, versus plastic or vinyl based like duct tape, or paper based like painters tape, which makes it far more durable. You can now get 30-60 prints per build plate taping, which means less preparation time and less failed prints.
This material was designed not to damage or leave behind adhesive residue on the object to which it is adhered. Don’t worry about making a sticky mess of your build plate, acrylic OR glass. Prints stick better and warp less due to the increased raft adhesion of its semi-rough surface.
Fargo 3D Printing Build Plate Tape is pre-cut to fit your MakerBot Replicator 2 build platform. Comes with two pieces per pack.
