Capricorn XS 1M 1-Meter PTFE Tube Teflon ID 2MM OD 4MM for 1.75MM Filament
Capricorn XS Series of Professional Grade Bowden Tubing is made from the highest quality PTFE. Their secret blend of high lubricity additives turns it a deep blue color.
High Lubricity Additives make Capricorn XS Series tubing the lowest friction Bowden tubing on the market. These are not a coating, but are inside the PTFE. Less friction means more responsiveness, less retraction, more accurate prints, less slippage, wear, and tear on the extruder, and less clogging when printing chunky filaments such as some woodfills or ironfills.
Lower retraction means time saved every time the extruder retracts. Over the course of a print, a few milliseconds here and a few there add up to a lot of time saved.
1.9mm ± 0.05mm Inner Diameter A tighter inner diameter tolerance than traditional tubing reduces the "wiggle room," or buckling, inside the tube, allowing you to print flexible filaments even on the longest Bowden systems.
High Temperature Resistance The high-temperature additive improves the thermal properties of the PTFE, allowing it to print at higher temperatures for longer duty cycles. Capricorn XS tubing will operate at even higher temperatures than Capricorn TL. See our Safety page for more details about high temperature printing.
