The Polyetherimide sheet comes with 3M 468MP adhesive already laminated to the PEI. Apply the PEI with slight strain and at an angle to forestall and decrease air bubbles. As soon as utilized set the print mattress to 60C and apply strain evenly throughout the PEI in a sweeping style to firmly set the adhesive. Please use a towel to keep away from getting burned. Stage the mattress and set the peak of the nozzle earlier than printing.
If PEI is put in to the highest floor of a mattress sandwich (a construct plate with a number of layers), it is strongly recommended to put in PEI on high of borosilicate glass.
Warmth the mattress to the specified temperatures for printing (60 C for PLA and 100 C for ABS). Relying on how thick your mattress sandwich is, your set temperature will not be your floor PEI temperature.
When the print is accomplished, let the mattress cool, and the half shall be simple to launch from the PEI floor. Elements are literally simpler to take away if launched earlier than the mattress turns into utterly chilly.
Leveling the mattress could be very, essential when utilizing PEI. You need the primary layer to be shut sufficient to be squished a bit of. PETG is an exception and would not like squished layers, by which case a Z hole ought to be used.
Clear in between prints with isopropyl alcohol and a lint free rag. Acetone can be utilized as a substitute of isopropyl alcohol, however the mattress have to be chilly if acetone is used. Optionally, mild sanding with 600-1000 grit sand paper might be accomplished after a number of printing to provide the PEI sheet extra life.
Anet A8 / Anet A6 / Reprap Prusa i3 / And extra! PEI may also be lower to dimension by scoring with a pastime knife.

3M 468MP adhesive thickness: zero.13mm (zero.005 inches)
Made within the USA – Ultem 1000 PEI sheet installs rapidly by way of the laminated adhesive on high of present flat construct platforms (e.g. borosilicate glass)
Bubble free software – The 3M 468MP adhesive is already preapplied to the PEI; merely peel again the tape liner for fast adhesion to the mattress
Construct Floor – PEI is the proper no prep construct floor which is endlessly reusable for a number of prints; clear with isopropypl alcohol between prints (or with acetone on a COLD mattress)
ABS and PLA filaments (together with many different supplies) print instantly on to PEI floor with out the necessity for extra adhesives, tapes, or slurry
