What materials have you used on the FT5?

Hi all
I have been printing on the FT5 for a few months now and I am looking at different material.
I started with PLA and am now using ABS, great on smaller parts, problems with larger parts.
I was looking at PETG but it seems the recommended temperature of the nozzle is too high for the Folger FT5 (235-265°C)
The FT5 won't go over 245°C.
It seems HIPS is the same.
Has anybody successfully printed any other materials apart from PLA and ABS?

Thanks
