Makerpoint.nl (own brand):

They just answered my question:

260c for the nozzle and 100c for the bed. They expect some adhesion issues on the bed though.

    ik heb wel goede resultaten gezien als je bijvoorbeeld op een stukje (berken)triplex print. De oppervlakte is war ruw en 'harig' zodat het het lekker hecht. Wel even opletten op de nieuwe z-hoogte.

    Brim gebruiken werkt natuurlijk ook goed en eventueel de brim nog even na tapen met ducktape of de blauwe tape.

    Did see some good result with the use of (birch)plywood. Surface is a little hairy.

    Brim is good as well and you can tape over the brim using duck tape or the blue tape.

    From their own FAQ:

    What Materials work with BuildTak?

    Works with ABS, PLA, HIPS, PET+, Brick, Wood & Flexible (TPE) filaments; additionally we have had success with getting nylon and t-glase (PETT) to adhere when used with a thin layer of washable glue stick on the BuildTak surface.
