Ultimaker CPE+ Filament (700g)
Ultimaker CPE+ is a super-tough co-polyester filament. It is resistant to chemicals and extremely tough, with outstanding temperature and impact resistance properties.
Available in Black, White and Transparent in 700g reels, CPE+ is a superb material for printing complex geometries and functional prototypes, because it has sound dimensional stability even when printed extremely thin. CPE+ is also widely used to print end-use parts that need to be tough. It is favoured by engineers and product designers, who require their parts to be highly resistant to chemicals, lubricants, greases and temperatures.
The key difference between CPE+ and CPE is that CPE+ has better thermal and impact resistance; CPE has a higher tensile and flexural strength. So really, both of these materials can be used to create robust parts, but CPE+ is tougher. In fact, it has been formulated to be 10 times tougher than standard CPE, with a 52MPa tensile stress at break rating. Due to this, we recommend CPE+ first and foremost for functional, end-use parts, while CPE will be a cheaper solution for creating early-stage prototypes and end-use parts.
