Where to buy PEI / ULTEM sheet, especially BIG ONES

Post by Tomasz Stawarz » Sat May 27, 2017 10:37 pm

Hi everybody!
Im going to build my first 3d printer. While (as for now) I have no problem finding most of parts I can't find bigger, and thicker sheets of PEI (something like 400 x 400 x 0,5-1 mm). Any advice where to get one, preferably in reasonable price? Thanks in advance for any advice.

If you can go with a very thin one it's not that expensive(0.07mm for $24 from cshyde)
When you go something like 0.5-1mm it quite a lot of money.

But sometime if you look around in Amazon, ebay, Aliexpress you might find a good deal.

THX, I can go even with 0,2mm-0,5 of thickness, the problem is that i can't find anything bigger than 12x12 inches and that's about 304,8x304,8mm - comparing to 400x400mm i would like to find it is tiny ;)

I can't vouch for them, since I haven't ordered anything there, but I've seen these guys recommended on the G+ 3D printing group:
http://catalog.cshyde.com/viewitems/3d- ... /ultem-pei

Looks like their 15.75" should be exactly the size you're looking for.

Thank you :-)
15,75" would be greate -but holly cow it is expressive! :shock: Still I will write to them if they can sell me square in this size but like 0,25mm thick. Maybe price will be acceptable.

For anyone interested in topic - if you are lucky you can buy almost any kind of PEI sheet cheaply from Alibaba.com - unfortunately most of manufacturers selling on this side do not ship to my country. But I will manage by asking a friend who lives in UK.
