In 2016, Capricorn Premium developed the XS formula of additives with high lubricating power combined with a smaller internal diameter, 1.9 mm. ± 0.05 mm., in order to print flexible filaments with Bowden-controlled printers. Beta testers quickly discovered that this also allowed them to reduce retraction, which turned out to be an even bigger selling point.
High lubrication additives make our XS series tubes the least rubbing Bowden tubes on the market. Less friction means more responsiveness, less shrinkage, more accurate prints, less slipping, wear and tear on the extruder, and less clogging when printing large filaments, such as some fiberfills. wood or iron.
Lower retraction means saving time each time the extruder retracts. During a print, a few milliseconds here and there saves us a lot of time.
Inner diameter of 1.9 mm. ± 0.05 mm. Reduces the “leeway” of the flange, allowing you to print flexible filaments even on the longest Bowden systems.
High temperature resistance thanks to the use of the highest quality PTFE. Our XS tube will operate at even higher temperatures than our TL. See our security page for more details on high temperature printing.
