Description

CPE (Co-Polyester) 3D print materials (available as CPE and CPE+) are resistant against chemical agents, strong and posses good dimensional stability. Because of this it is the preferred choice for functional prototypes and mechanical pieces. Both CPE and CPE+ have the same performance characteristics, but CPE+ has the additional advantages of having higher temperature resistance and higher impact strength.

A price comparison for the Ultimaker CPE filaments can be found HERE.

Both CPE variants are resistant against chemicals, tough and dimensionally stable and guarantee reasonable stiffness, high strength and high impact resistance. This type of filament is thus perfectly suited for complex, technical prints and functional prototypes.

Ultimaker's CPE+ and the more affordable CPE are both very suitable for bridging large pieces. The material should be printed at higher temperatures (between  446 °F and 482 °F) in order to achieve good results. Once hardened, CPE can withstand temperatures of up to 158 °F (70 °C), CPE+ can handle temperatures up to 212 °F (100 °C). CPE+ is also up to 10 times stronger than normal CPE.

It is especially the combination of chemical resistance and hardness that makes the CPE family shine. And thanks to the new profiles in the latest version of MultiMaker's CURA software, printing with CPE+ is easy and reliable.

Advantages

  • Excellent resistance against chemical influences
  • Excellent hardness and dimensional stability
  • Good interlayer adhesion, especially when you use the covers
  • Low levels of ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds
  • Ideal for small production and functional prototypes
  • Transparent filaments are possible

Differences Ultimaker CPE+ and CPE

  • CPE is available in more colors
  • CPE's tensile strength and flexible strength are higher, while CPE+ has been composed to be 10x stronger
  • CPE+ has a temperature resistance of up to 212 °F, while CPE offers resistance up to 157 °F
  • CPE has a better adhesion to the print plate than CPE+, but with the right adhesion materials there is barely any difference

Package
Ultimaker's CPE+ filament is delivered on a spool with  1.7 lb (750 gram) thermoplastic material with a thickness of 2.85 mm. The CPE+ filaments are available in three variants:

  • CPE+ Transparent
  • CPE+ White
  • CPE+ Black

Filament system
For their 3D printers Ultimaker uses an open filament system. That means that you can also use 3D print materials of other suppliers. However, you can expect that Ultimaker's own filaments will likely produce the best results.
