This tube is an improvement over the stock MakerBot Replicator 1 and MakerBot Replicator 2 thermal barrier tube. It is made from a SS and plated with TwinClad XT coating. TwinClad XT is a very low friction Electroless Nickel composite coating, often used in injection molding because of it release properties. This high lubricity plating will prevent clogging in the critical zone of hotend, where filament liquidizes. It is also very hard and corrosion resistant. Great for high abrasion filaments like Carbon Fiber, Metal filled, Aluminates, etc.
- Compatible replacements for Makerbot Replicator 1 & 2
- Used in injection molding, Extra low friction for smooth plastic flow
- Very good release properties (prevent cold zone jams), Corrosion resistant
- High hardness (53-55 Rc)
- Made in USA
