PTFE couplers: TFT, TFM, TFN?

Recommended Posts

Posted · PTFE couplers: TFT, TFM, TFN?

Hello!

I'm confused. I used these semi-translucent couplers from 3dsolex (TFT or TFM? I don't know...). Liked them a lot. Now they have new ones, called TFN. Not translucent anymore. Are they better?

TFN and TFT have the same specs (3dsolex). TFM from UM are also actually the same.

For the shake of knowledge...

TFM is the technical name of the plastic Polytetrafluoroethylene

TFN is a made up name that doesn’t mean a thing.

So...

Thanks guys for your answers. I just installed this new TFN in my machine. First print went great. @Dim3nsioneer you say that TFN and TFT from 3dsolex have the same specs. They do feel very different in hand. TFT ones felt very slippery and were semi-translucent. This new TFN is whiter, opaque and feels very similar to old Ultimaker PTFE which shipped when Ultimaker 2 came out... Well, as long as they work fine, I'm good.
