NinjaFlex - Glass Transition Temperature

Posted · NinjaFlex - Glass Transition Temperature

Hi everyone,

I've been using NinjaFlex on my Ultimaker and had some great results. I've had my bed temperature set to around 65 degrees Celsius as this is approximately the same as NinjaFlex's glass transition temperature according to: http://www.desktop3dprinter.com/ninjaflex-filament/ninjaflex-175mm-fire.... .

I have however found a NinjaTek related article saying it to be -30degrees Celsius. https://ninjatek.com/products/filaments/ninjaflex/ > Tech Spec > Technical Data.

I'm more inclined to believe the NinjaTek one and doing some background research it sounds the most plausible. But then what on earth is this 66 degrees Celsius being quoted by other companies?!

Thanks in advance,

    I use 40ºC as bed temp for Ninjaflex and it works great.

    Glass transition temp for flexible materials should be well below room temp, otherwise they would not be flexible.

    I second this all the way around as I have had similar success.
