We've finally rounded out our colorFabb collection with another solid entry. XT is a different breed from standard PLA. It's measurably tougher than PLA and is also classified as FDA food-contact compliant.
From the colorFabb Press Release:
In 2013 Eastman and Helian Polymers entered a joint development program in order to develop a new unique 3D Printing material for Desktop 3D Printing. Many formulations of specialty polyesters have been tested for functionality, printability and safe printing.
All these efforts have lead to a unique formulation for 3D Printing that features excellent properties: High-strength and very high toughness, Odor Neutral processing, High Tg/improved temp. resistance, Styrene free formulation, FDA food contact compliance, BPA (Bisphenol A) free formulation.
Works with the Ultimaker 2 3D Printer
colorFabb has tested and verified this 2.85mm filament on the Ultimaker 2.
Insanely Exact Diameter Tolerance
The colorFabb team is obsessive about the quality of their filament. During production, they use advanced systems to monitor the diameter of their filament as many as 1000 times per second. They're willing to guarantee 0.05mm +/- on both 2.85mm and 1.75mm colorFabb 3D printing filaments. You can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material desired.
Each spool of colorFabb 3D printing filament comes sealed airtight in a double barrier foil, which protects it from the elements as it makes its trip to your 3D printer.
Know Thy Materials
colorFabb invests heavily in R&D to make the best possible filaments. Learn more about the exceptional properties of colorFabb materials.

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
