Capricorn XS PTFE



Capricorn XS 
is a brandnew, innovative and specially for 3D printing designed high-end PTFE tube. 

It is made from pure Japanese resin and a new developed additive and is excellent for printing flexible filaments.
Compared to standard PTFE, this tube offers unique advantanges and makes this product to a game changer in 3D printing. Due to the low friction and temperature resistance, Capricorn XS is ideally suited as a hotend liner. 

Enjoy the benefits of a lightweight bowden extruder and the filament control of direct extruders.
Capricorn XS improves the extrusion behavior and is the perfect upgrade for many 3D printers.
