Why use filament dryers and dry boxes?

 

All FDM printing filaments are hygroscopic, which means that the materials like to absorb moisture. However, this hygroscopicity can ruin the filaments during the 3D printing process. As plastic polymers, the filaments are composed of molecule chains strung together. Moisture introduces water molecules that can break up the chains, damaging the plastic and resulting in poor print quality or fragile parts.

This is where filament dryers and dry boxes come in to save the day. Filament dryers, like other industrial dryers or dehydrators, heat the air in a chamber to keep moisture away. For instance, PrintDry™’s filament dryer uses heat to cause vigorous molecule movement in the filament, weakening and breaking the bond of water molecules from the polymer chains.

Aside from filament dryers, dry boxes also keep your filaments stable and in shape. The airtight containers protect filaments from moisture, making them the ultimate storage solutions for 3D printing filaments.
