New Filament Doesn't Stick to Bed

Posted · New Filament Doesn't Stick to Bed

I ran out of Ultimaker Brand filament today and switched to an unopened new spool of Protoparadigm "Grape" color filament.

I have an UMO with official heated bed and I cannot get the Protoparadigm filament to stick to the heated glass bed. I literally performed over 30 bed leveling patterns attempting to adjust the bed with the 3 point leveling knobs live during the prints, only having to stop each print as the pattern would eventually get pulled up off the bed.

I did not have this issue at all with the Ultimaker brand. I attemped different nozzle temps with the Protoparadigm brand: 210, 220, 225, and 230C with no success. I even adjusted the bed temp from 70, 75, 80C. The higher bed and nozzle temperatures seemed to do better, but still not acceptable as all prints would still get pulled off the bed eventually.

What do I do? Is this an issue typical of Protoparadigm brand filament?
